Midnight Madness is a unique basketball program that provides a positive space for youth to develop their skills both on and off the court.
Launched back in 2013, the program brings together youth aged 14 to 17 from neighbourhoods across Toronto Community Housing to play basketball on Friday nights.
The program, offered throughout the spring and winter seasons, combines both physical and personal development.
Every Friday night, youth are driven to the University of Toronto's Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport where they take part in free games and skills training. Before stepping on the court, the teams enjoy a dinner and take part in life-skills workshops to learn about themselves, their peers and how to access positive life-changing opportunities.
