The Welcome Toronto basketball tournament is unique in class. The three-day invitational hosts eight, top-tier Ontario Basketball League teams and gives them the chance to complete in the hallowed courts of the Toronto Raptors practice facility, now officially renamed OVO Athletic Centre.
The event is focused on basketball for sure, but is as much curated to serve players and their families an unforgettable immersive cultural experience that brings together art, community and the game at the centre of it all.
Already committed partners with the Toronto Raptors and Raptors 905, Dairy Farmers of Ontario’s Recharge With Milk team were proud to announce a new partnership with the OBA. All four basketball partners share a common objective of reducing barriers to play and increasing the accessibility of basketball across Ontario.
Athletes were “swagged out” in Recharge With Milk tournament t-shirts and all-stars were recognized for their Performances of the Game. They also had the chance to meet their favourite Raptors: both current and alumni! Off the court, athletes, friends, and family could test their basketball skills in the activation zone. Young athletes had a blast earning free chocolate milk for taking on the Recharge With Milk interactive basketball handling game.
Players were encouraged to come back throughout the day to defend their high score!
