Boxout Brand Basketball (BOB) was created by founder, Danielle Chong (BA, Sport Management – Brock University) in 2016. Growing up with two older brothers it was always forced to play with “the boys.” At the time it wasn’t understood but playing sports with the boys not only helped with confidence, but competitiveness and overall skill.
The mission of Boxout Brand Basketball is to provide opportunities to participants through community initiatives and events utilizing the sport of Basketball in a Coed Recreational setting. The importance of growing and friendly competition regardless of your gender.
