Basketball in Toronto?

 

With the Assyrian National Convention only a few months away, the Assyrian Athletic Club of Toronto has added a new team to its family: The Winged Bull Basketball Team.
 
Within the last three months, we have found a vast number of young Assyrians within our community who are passionate about the game of basketball, ranging between the ages of 15 to 25.  Our immediate goal is to put a solid team together to represent the Assyrian community in Toronto among other communities and ultimately, represent Canada at this year Assyrian National Convention in Detroit, Michigan.
 
We look forward to playing against Assyrians from California, Detroit, and Chicago, as the game of basketball has become a popular sport among the Assyrian Community in the USA and we hope to follow the soccer team’s footsteps by bringing another championship trophy to Toronto.
 
However, our goals go beyond the convention.  Our ultimate goal is to establish a house-league within our community to give our players an opportunity to showcase their talents, learn the game, and most importantly, build friendships with one another.  Basketball has become a popular sport in Canada ever since the NBA introduced the Toronto Raptors, and it is obvious that the popularity has helped our community produce some talented players.
 
With that being said, we would like to take this opportunity to announce the first 9 members of the Toronto Winged Bull Basketball Team:

1.      Andre Allisha

2.      Sargon Allisha

3.      George Odisho

4.      Mike Shabeh

5.      Johnny Shaboo

6.      Sarkhadon “Nousa” Shmoel

7.      Levon Talia

8.      Ninwaya Yonan

9.      Naramsin Younan (Captain)
