ORION BASKETBALL ALUMNI

Welcome to Orion Basketball, an organization dedicated to building skills and character in the game of basketball. For 20 years, Coach John Shoemaker and his team have welcomed thousands of elementary-aged athletes into camps, house leagues, and competitive league programs. As a high school basketball coach, Coach Shoemaker has dedicated his time to helping young people across the London area find confidence, build playing skills, learn the fundamentals of teamwork, and have fun.

CURRENT LEAGUES

House League

Our House League sees Orion Basketball members playing in the same league. There are no tryouts, skill tests, or travel times here – young people can learn the fundamentals of the sport in an encouraging yet challenging environment. It will help build your child’s confidence on and off the court, get them active, and help them have fun!

Competitive

Orion Basketball’s Competitive League is ideal for when your young athlete wants to specialize in basketball and take their love of the game to the next level. Here, the potential for skills development is high, and members can both hone their gameplay and learn what it takes to succeed in faster-paced, higher-stakes sports.

CAMPS

Team

Orion Basketball Camps provide a high-energy atmosphere where athletes of all ages stay engaged with fun skill-building and play. Athletes go through purposeful skill development designed to build the fundamentals in shooting, dribbling, passing, footwork, and agility. Our camps are perfect for children or young adults who want to see if the sport is for them.
