    A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE PREMIER On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to everyone attending and competing in the 2013 Ontario Cup Provincial Championships, organized by Ontario Basketball. Ontario enjoys a special connection to basketball, given that James Naismith, a native of Ontario, organized the first competitions. With the game coming to Canada as early as 1892, it can be safely said that it is a sport of enduring popularity clearly demonstrated by the 2013 championships which are taking place 121 years later. I commend all the young athletes who are participating in these championships your dedication and hard work have brought you to this exciting event. And to the parents and coaches: thank you for supporting these young people in their quest to excel in the sport they so obviously love. I wish to acknowledge Ontario Basketball for giving Ontario youth the opportunity to participate in organized basketball and for raising awareness of the positive role this sport can play in young lives from building self-confidence to enhancing physical well-being. Please accept my best wishes for inspiring and memorable championship games.

    Kathleen Wynne Premier

  • May 3-5, 2013 Dear Players, Coaches, Managers and Fans, On behalf the KW Lightning girls basketball association, it is our pleasure to welcome you to Kitchener-Waterloo and the 2013 U19 women's Ontario Cup provincial championships. The KW Lightning girls basketball association is a non-profit organization that was formed 17 years ago to create an opportunity for girls to learn and develop basketball skills. Last year over 200 players participated on KW Lightning teams. Many athletes from our organization have moved on to have successful basketball careers at universities in both Canada and the United States. More importantly, they have developed into outstanding young ladies that give back to the game and the community. To the players: Your hours of practice to refine your individual and team skills have earned you the right to represent your city, town, village or district in this provincial championship. Play hard, play well and most importantly, enjoy this special moment in your basketball career. To the coaches and managers: Without your investments of time, energy and passion, none of this would be possible. Thanks for everything that you do to teach the wonderful game of basketball to your athletes. To the parents and family members: Thank you for all of the sacrifices (the delayed and missed meals, the extra driving and the financial commitments etc.) you make to allow your daughters/granddaughters/sisters/nieces to be part of Ontarios basketball family. To the fans: Enjoy the incredible competition that you will be witness to this weekend. These athletes are the best and most dedicated basketball players in Ontario. Cheer loudly for your team and demonstrate respect for officials and opponents. Best wishes to everyone involved for a most memorable 2013 U19 women's Ontario Cup! Yours in basketball, Allan Bush Pres
