The Green Line will be co-hosting a community event focused on women and girls in Toronto’s basketball scene with BCG East Scarborough. At the event, we’ll be holding a 5×5 basketball competition that’s open to everyone — including boys, girls, men, women and non-binary folks — so participants should register their team in advance at this link. Prizes will go to the winning team.
We’ll also be hosting a Story Circle, where community members will come together to discuss barriers to local female athletes and explore possible solutions, with a particular focus on accessing space for them to play and compete in. Competitors who aren’t playing or whose teams have been eliminated will join the Story Circle, which will be happening at the same time as the competition.
RSVP now to sign your team up for the competition, or to attend the free event on Thursday, Aug. 18 from 6 to 9 p.m. ET. It takes place at BGC East Scarborough, 100 Galloway Road.”
