About Excel

Meet Our
Coaching Staff

Train with the best youth basketball coaches in British Columbia.

Our Mission

The mission of Excel Basketball is to provide an exceptional personal development experience through the game of basketball by teaching the values of hard work, accountability, team play, competitiveness and sportsmanship.

We will provide comprehensive programs that help all of our athletes, from the beginning player to our elite players, become the best players and people they can be.  

It is our goal to provide a safe and positive environment where all kids feel valued and can feel great about their accomplishments. Most importantly, we hope that after our players have moved on from our organization, they will realize lifelong benefits from their experience with Excel Basketball.

Our parents, athletes and fans will find that Excel Basketball are committed to the following values:

5 Core Values


Kids First – We put the kids first in everything we do and every decision we make


Whole Player / Person Development – Our programs expand beyond just basketball. Through on and off the court activities, we attempt to instil the values of hard work, accountability, team play, sportsmanship and charity in all of our athletes.


All Ages / Abilities – We believe that basketball can be a positive outlet for all youth, not just elite athletes.


High-Quality Coaches and Staff – We seek out the highest quality coaches and people to be a part of our club.


Affordable, Value Driven Programs – Our staff and coaches are in this for kids, not money. We keep our fees as low as we possibly can to run an exceptional organization and allow families the ability to have their kids play for Excel Basketball.
