Markham Unionville Minor Basketball Association (MUMBA) is a not-for-profit organization established in 1986. MUMBA has expanded its operations extending to Thornhill and Stouffville as well. We are focused on developing both boys and girls from the ages of 4-18 into global athletes within the sport of basketball. MUMBA provides multiple opportunities at different levels for student athletes to develop through our Rep Programs, House League/Basketball School, Youth Basketball Academy and our Summer Programs.


Education Through Sport 

MUMBA is dedicated to providing our athletes with a global experience.  We want to focus on the development of athletes and coaches both on and off the court throughout the community to allow them to achieve human excellence. We have based our  philosophy on the following concepts:

  • Success
  • Character
  • Development of Coaches and Players
  • Unified Club and Community Culture

Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.

– John Wooden, Head Basketball Coach, Emeritus, UCLA


MUMBA is focused on player development within the sport of basketball. The mission is to drive character development through multiple levels of opportunity. We strive to create an environment in which every student athlete and coach is committed to the true spirit of competition through respect, integrity, responsibility, servant leadership* and sportsmanship. To accomplish this, we invest in our coaches’ development through education and a mentorship program. This will enable proper development of the student athlete through all stages of competition.

*Servant leadership definition: putting the group first while also being responsible for personal and group roles and performing at your best.
