Izayah Zeid Mohamedali Scholarship Fund

Vancouver Eagles Youth Basketball Club has established two scholarship funds for a deserving child whose parents cannot afford to pay the registration fee and who would like to practice and play on the Eagles Team. These perpetual scholarships are offered each season to a deserving child.


This Scholarship Fund is established in loving memory of our dear friend, a brilliant young boy Izayah Zeid Mohamedali (December 23, 1997 - May 02, 2003) who started to practice and play basketball when he was 3 years old. Unfortunately a rare cancer prevented Izayah from reaching his path to excellence. However, we his friends would like his spirit to live on with us and help other kids.


Scholarships will go to a child playing out of Trafalgar, Kitchener, Van Horne, Dr. Lord and Jamieson Elementary Schools.


Representatives of the Vancouver Eagles Basketball, the Principals of the aforementioned schools together along with Izayah’s parents make the final decision to whom to award these special scholarships.


Please contact the registrar of the club in order to get a Scholarship Application Form.




Program

We know that it takes 10-12 years to prepare an international caliber basketball player. In our club, the basketball curriculum is based on 2 hours of practice per week and regular games or tournaments. We realize that not all players from the Vancouver Eagles Basketball  become professional athletes however we strongly believe that all our Eagles  players will love to play basketball for life!


Players learn how to run properly, have great flexibility, superior physical conditioning, excellent basketball fundamental skills, and exceptional coordination. In two words, our players have: fundamental preparation.


Vancouver Eagles Youth Basketball  players develop a great friendship with their teammates and great sportsmanship with players from other leagues and clubs.


Our professional coaches give equal opportunities to all Vancouver Eagles Basketball players to develop their skills and participate equally in games and tournaments.


In our club there are 4 seasons: fall, winter, spring and summer.


Fall Season: To be Determined
Winter Season: January 11 - March 12, 2021
Spring Season: April 05 - June 11, 2021 
Summer Camp: June 28 - August 27, 2021


Practices take place once, twice a week or more depending on the player’s choice.


Each practice lasts a full hour and consists of:

1.    Warm up. General fitness.

2.    Warm up with ball handling

3.    Working on players fundamentals skills

4.    Basketball combinations

5.    Game/Scrimmage


During practice time players learn:

(Depending on the age of the player, there is a different level of difficulty for the practice and different expectations of performance for each individual player)
