The Kootenay Chill club basketball program – based in Nelson, BC – is a BasketballBC-sanctioned program offering opportunities for youth throughout the West Kootenay region to continue training and competing at an elite level throughout the Spring and Summer months. We strive to challenge dedicated local athletes looking for continued development by offering high-level coaching and mentorship with an emphasis on accountability and work ethic, fundamental skills training, and opportunities for elite-level competition. Check out the KOOTENAY CHILL PAGE for more information and REGISTER FOR UPCOMING TRYOUTS and the spring club season.

We need your help!

Being based in Nelson, our basketball club faces challenges of accessibility to elite-level competition of the Spring and Summer club basketball circuit found throughout the Okanagan and Lower Mainland. Our schedule in 2019 will see our club travel to tournaments in Penticton, Kamloops, Kelowna, the Lower Mainland, Calgary, and potential qualification to the BasketballBC Provincial Club Championships in Langley. To off-set tournament registration, travel, accommodation and cost of jerseys, the Kootenay Chill basketball club is looking for donations and sponsorship opportunities. Fundraising efforts will directly support youth involved in the program which is run as an extension of the Nelson Hoops Association non-profit society.

Sponsorship partners can expect logo branding on Kootenay Chill jerseys and exposure via local media coverage. We appreciate your consideration for sponsorship or donation in support of the Kootenay Chill basketball program.
