March 21, 2019

The 25th annual Bay Street Hoops tournament kicks off a week from today at the University of Toronto Athletic Centre. This year, all funds raised through the tournament will support KidSport Ontario and the Drive for Dreams Foundation.

There are a number of ways you can support Bay Street Hoops and its beneficiaries – keep reading to learn how.

Register a Team

We make it easy for skill levels to play in the tournament by offering eight different divisions.

  • Evolve ETFs: Men’s Competitive
  • Saputo: Men’s Rec A
  • CIBC Mellon: Men’s Rec B
  • Scotiabank: Men’s Rec C
  • TD Securities: Men’s Rec D

Registration for the tournament will close on Friday, March 22 at 5:00 p.m. or when we reach 56 registered teams. Register quickly because limited spots remain!

Join the Fan-Raising Challenge

Thanks to our Courtside Sponsor, Dilawri Group you have the chance to win an Audi A3 through our fan-raising challenge. The top five (5) fundraisers will be brought onto the court during the mid-day break on the final day of the tournament (Saturday, March 30, 2019). All five will compete in a mini contest (foul throw shooting and or three-point shooting) to determine a winner. The winner from the mini contest will then have the opportunity to shoot from half court. If the individual sinks the basket, they will win the Audi A3.

You do not need to be registered in the tournament to fan-raise. The cut off to enter is Friday, March 29 at 4:00 p.m. EST.


We are always looking for prizes and silent auction and live auction items for the Post-Game Party. Please email if you have an item to donate – all donations are appreciated!

We are also accepting monetary donations via our website. All money raised will directly support our beneficiaries.
