In light of the recent announcement from NBLC, the Sudbury Five organization wants to thank all of our fans and stakeholders for their continued patience and support.  You are of the utmost importance and our highest priority.  The Sudbury Five organization will be communicating to all of its stakeholders to ensure they are kept apprised of all aspects of the NBLC’s return to play for the 2021-22 season, and season ticket holders can also be assured that their seats will be held.

Bob Johnson, Vice President of Basketball Operations, “Clearly the Covid-19 pandemic has had a far-reaching impact on businesses worldwide, and in particular, it has been catastrophic on the Sports and Entertainment world. While it is not surprising that the NBLC has decided to cancel the 2020-21 season, I am both disappointed and saddened with this reality. I believe the entire Sudbury Five community will share in my disappointment.”

Our attention now turns to Sudbury Five’s next season.  While it is hard to draw positives out of the pandemic, the downtime is somewhat of a silver lining in that the Sudbury Five and the NBLC has been committing all of its energy towards improving the quality and entertainment value of the league for its return.

The Sudbury Five will remain involved with the community and has plans for several upcoming basketball clinics and school programs to promote the importance of physical wellbeing for youth and basketball skill development. The Five Academy will return with a 6-week program starting the end of March. The Sudbury Five recently launched our school program with Head Coach Logan Stutz. The Sudbury Five teaches a 1-week basketball-based curriculum to students in a classroom setting and in the gym. This will continue the Sudbury Five’s belief in grass roots basketball right here in the Greater Sudbury area.

Further information will be provided as it becomes available. Please send any additional questions to info@thefive.ca.
