The Cornwall & United Counties Basketball Association (the CUCBA) has been around since 1982. Over the years we’ve seen thousands of kids join the Cornwall Lions club and participated in numerous tournaments and tri meets. The organization is led by an executive board made up of Brad and Karen DeRochie, Brian Hickey, Perley Lewis, JF Lefebvre & Isabelle Beckstead.  If you’re interested in getting involved with the organization, simply contact one of the Executive members and let them know. The CUCBA is always looking for people to get involved, and no contribution is too small.

House League

CUCBA offers a fantastic opportunity for youth between the ages of 4-17 to get involved in recreational basketball. This House League allows children to dive into the sport of Basketball and enjoy the fun, dynamic exercise it offers. Though not as competitive as the travelling teams, this recreation league is still quite engaging.

Travelling Team

The Cornwall Lions travelling teams represent the competitive side of our organization. Travelling throughout Eastern Ontario, these players get to compete at a high level. While a bigger commitment than the house league, travelling team play fosters personal and interpersonal development at a more competitive level.
