The grand opening of Woodbridge Basketball Association took place on Saturday June 23rd 2012 and the organization has been growing ever since. Founded By Rockson Ogor and Dr. Janine Bowring, they set out with the goal to take basketball in Woodbridge to another level and create an environment for all parents and kids with a passion for basketball. They have succeeded in creating a family first environment and providing opportunities for children to come learn the beautiful game of basketball. Through great programs and finding great coaches along the way, they successfully brought WBA to life.
Our mission at WBA is to provide everyone who comes through our program with a safe and fun environment to play the game of basketball. We are committed to teaching the fundamental skills of basketball, and developing great sportsmanship skills through respect for teammates, the opposing teams, the coaches, fans and all officials.
With WBA founders business skills, they will be able to mentor and provide life skills needed by our youth as they transition into young adults and great citizens in their communities. The goal is that all members of WBA, including the coaches, parents and players, have a fun and memorable experience that extends far beyond the game of basketball.
WBA will incorporate a health and nutrition program into the league. We will provide healthy eating clinics, guidelines and individual consultations for families and players to encourage dietary and lifestyle habits conducive to athletes. This program will be run by Dr. Janine Bowring, one of the co-founders and a naturopathic doctor who has worked with athletes in her naturopathic practice over the past 15 years.
