Support and Funding Needed to Sustain the ONE Basketball Program


Halifax, June 5, 2023 - ONE (#AllForOneAndOneForAll), a youth empowerment program based in Nova Scotia, has been making remarkable strides with its transformative basketball program. Thanks to the generous support from Sport Nova Scotia, ONE has expanded its offerings, providing youth across the province with opportunities for growth and development. With its strong presence in Spryfield, ONE has established a sense of inclusivity and community among its participants. However, to continue this impactful journey, the organization is now seeking further support and funding from the wider community.


Sport Nova Scotia's Game-Changing Support:

In 2022, ONE Basketball Program received a substantial funding boost from Sport Nova Scotia, propelling the organization's basketball program to new heights. With this financial support, ONE has enhanced its training, development, and engagement opportunities for youth throughout Nova Scotia. The funding has played a pivotal role in securing dedicated gym times and ensuring consistent and accessible spaces for young athletes to thrive on the court.


Addressing a Void in Spryfield and Beyond:

Recognizing the shortage of accessible and engaging activities for youth in Spryfield, ONE Basketball Program stepped in to provide a positive outlet and a sense of belonging through basketball. While their impact in Spryfield has been remarkable, ONE's reach extends far beyond the community's borders. Youth from all corners of Nova Scotia are invited to participate in the program, benefit from its resources, and become part of a supportive community. By extending its reach across the province, ONE aims to empower and inspire youth from all backgrounds, creating a stronger, more connected Nova Scotia.


Business and Community Support: A Catalyst for Greater Impact:

While the funding from Sport Nova Scotia has been instrumental in ONE's growth, sustained expansion and impact require support from local businesses and the wider community. The organization is actively seeking partnerships with businesses and organizations across the province to amplify its impact and reach even more young athletes. Collaborating with local partners will provide ONE with additional resources, mentorship opportunities, and pathways for youth to excel not only in basketball but also in life.


A Call for Community Engagement:

ONE extends a heartfelt invitation to businesses, organizations, and individuals across Nova Scotia to join their mission of empowering youth through basketball. By collaborating with local partners, ONE can further expand its program, offer enhanced resources, and reach even more young athletes. Whether through sponsorships, mentorship programs, or volunteering, every contribution has the potential to make a lasting impact on the lives of youth and foster a sense of unity and community pride throughout Nova Scotia.


The Journey of ONE Basketball Club:

The ONE Basketball Club has achieved significant milestones and witnessed the positive impact of its programming on the lives of young athletes. The end-of-program report showcases the dedication and determination of its participants, the success of its camps and weekly basketball club, and the incredible engagement from the equity-deserving groups it aims to serve. By providing an inclusive environment and free programming, ONE has given opportunities to youth who may not have otherwise been able to participate in organized sports.


Looking ahead, ONE envisions expanding its monthly camps, offering free summer camps featuring multiple sports activities throughout the week. This expansion will reduce daycare expenses for households and promote an active lifestyle within communities. Additionally, the club plans to establish male and female teams across various age groups, host tournaments, and create a vibrant recreation league. These initiatives will further develop players' skills, enhance their competitive experiences, and foster a sense of community.


ONE Basketball Club urges the wider community to join them in this incredible journey of empowering youth. Through collaboration and support, we can continue to make a lasting difference in the lives of young athletes, ensuring they have the resources and opportunities to thrive both on and off the basketball court.
