Battle Canada’s mission is to be the best outdoor cultural sports and music festival to serve the diverse cultural mosaic that is Canada, and to provide spaces to honour its many diverse ethnic communities. Our #Battle4Cause is in support of SickKids Foundation and Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation. We seek to positively impact those in need through a celebratory marriage of sports and the arts.
COVID halted our plans in 2020 to expand our events to Montreal, Brampton and Toronto. From April to May, we transitioned to our virtual platform on YouTube called #BattleliveEvents.
Then in August 2020, we permanently installed our very own outdoor NBA-sized court called the Battleground, at the back of our Headquarters in North York (302 Bridgeland Avenue).
We have created the space to enable us to host various intimate outdoor games and events that are safe such as:
- Women’s and Men’s Open 3X3 Basketball Games
- Men’s Pro Battleground King of the Court
- Dunk Shows
- Hip-hop dance & Singing Performances
Since April, we have raised $3,125 for the Sickkids Foundation and Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation. In addition, we are creating programs to develop, train, and instill confidence in the next generation of basketball players and athletes.
