Welcome to the Chatham-Kent Wildcats. The Wildcats is a travel basketball program for boys and girls from Novice to Juvenile. The club competes against other programs around Ontario and is part of Ontario Basketball. Each year our club competes in the Provincial Championships. In 2009 the Novice girls and boys Championships were hosted in Chatham with great success. The Novice Girls finished the weekend with a gold medal in Division #2 in front of a large home town crowd.
The Chatham-Kent Wildcats have based our program out of the WISH centre in Chatham. This facility has already been filled with three different programs to benefit the children of Chatham-Kent. They are the Mini-Jammers, Chatham-Kent minor basketball and Wildcats. These three programs are working together to encourage participation in the sport of Basketball. Chatham-Kent High School was full on Sunday afternoons with 6 of our teams using it as our main practice facility.
The Wildcats program has purchased new uniforms over the past 2 years. With the rising cost of tournaments, equipment and uniforms we will be hosting our annual Perch Fry in February 2010. The Chatham-Kent Wildcats is always looking for sponsorship of its program or individual teams. If you are interested in sponsoring a team please contact any of the executives listed above.
With the interest level we have seen over the past 4 years the Chatham-Kent Wildcats is always looking for new coaches, managers and volunteers. If you are interested in being involved please contact one of the executive members.
We encourage anyone to come out and watch our kids in action on the weekends.
Thanks for your support
