Why Simcoe United?

Simcoe United Basketball - Team - Time out

Simcoe United Basketball was started to help provide the highest level of training, coaching, competition & community connections we could for high school aged athletes in Simcoe County.

With the rise of Prep/Academy Schools around the province and the accompanying exorbitant cost, our local basketball community has recognized the need for access to affordable, high-performance opportunities in our own region. This need combined with the passion and expertise of our coaches, we have decided to offer everything an aspiring basketball player needs to pursue their passion right here in Barrie!

Simcoe United Basketball will emphasize healthy competition, knowledgeable/caring coaching, and the importance of discipline and commitment. Although basketball will be the main focus, we will also be emphasizing academics, life skills, & community connection.

Simcoe County has such a rich history of high-level basketball players and we are excited to help the next generation!

CULTURE/COMMUNITY

FAMILY

Being a part of our club means you are part of our Family. The foundation of a family is a group or unit working together. Our staff, coaches, players, mentors and parents support one another, challenge each other and create memories together that last a lifetime.

PROCESS

Simcoe United is a place to become the best you can be. To grow stronger and get better. A place to be led and a place to lead. A place to train, compete, connect, cut loose, and rise up. A place where process leads to performance, and kids become athletes.

JOURNEY

We take what we do seriously as families dedicate time and resources to having their kids participate. However, we strongly believe that having Simcoe United be a fun and happy place is equally as important to the success of each player and team. If players are having fun, they want to come to practice and give their all. With effort and commitment come progress and growth. Players are balanced and able to give emotionally to their teammates. Simcoe United players, families and coaches enjoy the journey!

NEXT LEVEL PREPARATION

Club basketball can be a journey that spans many years. Often the club basketball experience culminates in an offer to continue one’s playing career in college/university. 

Simcoe United is a cut above the rest when it comes to providing individualized recruiting education, guidance and support to all of our players that want to play at the next level. With over 20 years of experience, we have worked hard to build honest relationships with college coaches that want to recruit our athletes.

WE ARE PROUD THAT OUR LEADERSHIP HAS COACHED OVER 30 PLAYERS THAT HAVE GONE ON TO ALL LEVELS (USPORT & NCAA) OF POST-SECONDARY BASKETBALL.
We pride ourselves on preparing athletes for the next level but we also know that some of our athletes move on to being a college student or enter the workforce. At Simcoe United, we aim to prepare our players for what is next by focusing on leadership, a strong work ethic, responsibility, discipline and commitment.
