PANTHER's Competitive House League Program
"Building Skills and Self-Confidence Combined!!"
What is AllStar : Based around a 2 times a week, 14/16 week program, players learn from coaches committed to teaching individual skills in the latest Canada Basketball recommended manner. A full 1.5 hour practice slot and a 1.5 hour refereed (OBA Refs for most games) game slot each week. This weekly training ensures skills are developed a high level while still allowing players the challenge of friendly competition in a true game format. AllStar Coaches are committed to developing great players and work as a team to provide every single player in the league with a chance of becoming better.
"Each successive year builds on fundamentals learned at earlier ages. Opportunities to “catch up” on skills missed by not playing AllStar in a previous year are always available. REP players in our Panther program are also allowed to participate in AllStar, all other REP players are prohibited without express written consent of Burlington Basketball."
Why it Works? By playing one game a week and then practicing the following Saturday, players are able to make mistakes on game night, work on solutions at practice and then repeat the process the following week. This is ideal for building self-confidence and learning how practice can make you better at anything.

Following closely the example established by Basketball Ontario with their Provincial Bantam and Midget Elite Development programs (Fair Playing Time and Man to Man Defense), All-Star offers players aged 9-16 an opportunity to develop skills that are necessary to become a complete athlete. The AllStar Program relies heavily on Canada Basketball’s Long Term Athlete Development Model which is viewable online at www.ltad.com .
