ABA Presents: Hope Through Hoops - An Evening of Inspired Entertainment!

Alberta Basketball will be hosting a special 'Hoops Hangout' we are calling 'Hope Through Hoops'. Over the coming days we will be announcing our line up of guests that will share messages to uplift and entertain us as we continue to deal with the realities of COVID.

The event will take place online through ZOOM at 7pm Tonight!

ABA's Executive Director Paul Sir will be the host for the evening!

Our lineup of presenters is as follows:

Miah-Marie Langlois 

Canada Basketball Senior Women’s National Team, two-time Olympic athlete

Ken King 

Founder & CEO of The Boost Institute, Canada Basketball coach educator

Jacob Hendy 

Executive Director of The Indigenous Sport Council Alberta

Shawnee Harle 

Mental Toughness & High Performance Coach, two-time Olympic coach

The Amazing Hondo

Entertainer & Speaker, internationally acclaimed Magic With a Message program

A few notes from The Amazing Hondo: The Amazing Hondo will be performing an entire-audience Team Participation trick (so find 4 old playing cards that you will not need after the show), and have a full deck handy if you'd like to be a "featured assistant". Hondo may ask any of you at random to think of a card, or make a simple choice of some kind. For non-participation routines, just enjoy the magic and message as if watching on television. We ask that you KEEP YOUR AUDIO OFF, and only turn your audio on if Hondo interacts with you ... a Zoom co-host may also ask you to Unmute Yourself if Hondo requests. 

 

We look forward to seeing all of you this evening!
