KW Girls Basketball Association is a not for profit organization that was founded in 2015 to offer basketball opportunities for girls in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. During the 2015-2016 season the KWGBA fielded 3 teams for rep competition and the organization has been building ever since.

KWGBA was founded by a group of like-minded volunteers, coaches, and parents to fill a void in competitive girls basketball in KW and are proud members of the OBA.

KWGBA strives to provide an exciting basketball program that offers quality coaching, skill development, and a love of basketball. We aim to provide parents with a low cost and high quality program with full transparency.
