The Strathroy Spirit girls basketball club has been a part of the Ontario Basketball Assocation (OBA) since 1992.
That's twenty-eight years of encouraging and developing young female athletes. Twenty-eight years of coaching, managing, volunteering, and parenting the leaders of tomorrow.
It's not just a club, it's a community.
Our mission is to increase participation and skill levels for girls in Strathroy and the surrounding areas while encouraging a healthy lifestyle and positive participation in team sport.
Check out the fall 8 week House League, or try out for a Competitive team that runs November - April.
Volunteers are the foundation of community programs, and both the House League and the Competitive programs run thanks to the time and commitment from coaches, volunteers, and parents.
Strathroy Spirit Basketball is a volunteer-driven organization which aims to enhance the lives of young girls in the Strathroy area.
The Spirit 8-week House League is a recreational program for girls of all skill levels, ages 7 to 14. With fun warm up games, skills and drills, and scrimmage experience, every player can bring their game to the next level!

The Strathroy Spirit basketball program has run since 1992 on the dedication of volunteers from the communities of Strathroy and surrounding area. Would you like to be on the court teaching kids to dribble and shoot? Or perhaps you have interest in marketing, website upkeep, or social media? Maybe you would enjoy working behind the scenes with registration spreadsheets, or helping order t-shirts?
If you are interested in giving of your time to help continue this great program for girls in our community, we’d love to hear from you.
