Greetings, my name is Coach Ken Wade. It would be a delightful pleasure to describe to you who I am as a trainer and a coach. I have over 30 years of coaching with a diverse age range. As a coach and trainer, I believe in players achieving their true potential that will help them develop and enhance their skills on and off
the court. I have an unwavering commitment to learning, and my extensive coaching experience and basketball IQ are supplemented by me obtaining high levels of coaching certificates. I am a winning coach, and I have coached many teams to championships, including:
• Centennial College Junior Varsity Men’s Basketball team to six Championships
• TTC All-Star (local 113) team to their 2017 Championship trophy in Detroit
• U16 Girls team to the OBA Championship in 2019
I have worked with many organizations such as Team Joseph Training, Centennial College Varsity Teams, and Toronto Transit Commission all-star team, and I also coached and trained at prep schools. I am passionate about working with players individually to enhance them to be competitive on the basketball courts.
I have a strong work ethic, and I am committed to teaching basketball IQ and skills in a manner that will assist players in excelling and performing at their maximum potential.
"Together, we are a team, win, lose, or draw; we are a family."

“I came into contact with LOBA. My daughter has been playing with the training team the last 2 years. Great team atmosphere and environment.
Her team practice has enabled her to attend the catholic school regional champion February 2020.”
