TELUS – Presenting Sponsor for the Vancouver Challenge

VGBA is pleased to announce TELUS as the naming sponsor for the Vancouver Girls’ Basketball Challenge tournament. In November 2010, TELUS has generously donated $5000/year for 3 years for bursaries for the tournament players. The funds not awarded at the tournament will be used to help players participating in elite spring and summer programs and needing financial assistance. The support TELUS provides at this tournament goes a long way in helping students achieve their basketball and academic goals.

Two Scholarships Established in Partnership with Langara College

The VGBA is pleased to announce the establishment of the Vancouver Girls’ Basketball Challenge Scholarships. These scholarships were established in partnership/cooperation with Langara College and will be awarded annually to successful candidates that have participated in the TELUS VANCOUVER GIRLS’ BASKETBALL CHALLENGE. The two scholarships valued at $1000 each can be applied to tuition and fee costs upon enrolment at Langara College.


Funding of the scholarships has been made possible through generous donations from Mr. Jahanshah Assadi, Mr. Russel Black, Mr. Greg Eng, Mr. Michael Kwan, Mr. Ron Suzuki and Mr. Wesley Uyeyama. Langara College will match donations to a maximum of $3000.


To ensure sustainability of this scholarship the VGBA and Langara College will continue to seek donations from individuals and private sponsors.
