Boys who join the basketball teams do so knowing the program has been breaking school records, which has helped reinvigorate the sport at UCC. In 2015, the varsity team secured its first ever berth into the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA), with an overwhelming 75-34 win in the Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA) final. Making its debut at the provincial championships, the team won the AAA consolation championship.
The Under 16A basketball team also had a stand-out season, ending CISAA competition with a 12-1 record.
UCC's recent success on the court is, in part, due to the development of a high-level training program. Students perform hours of drills, running plays and game play. Coaches are now shooting for bigger gains with a program that now offers varsity, junior varsity, Under 16, Under 14, Under 13, Under 12, Under 11 and Under 10 teams.
