Coaches Open House


Toronto Raptors Coaches' Open House offers coaches of all levels across Ontario a unique opportunity to watch, listen and learn from experienced individuals who know what it takes to successfully teach the game at multiple levels.

Guests in attendance will have a chance to ask questions after each session and gain insight into drills and exercises demonstrated by the Toronto Raptors Coaching Staff. The goal is to help YOU help young players develop and enhance both their basketball, and mental skills.

Toronto Raptors Basketball Development is focused on delivering accredited programming at all levels of play. Raptors Basketball Academy and Raptors Clinics Series are the featured programs we offer to help support the growth of the game in Ontario communities.
