Ahmadiyya Basketball League

Based on the guidance of Beloved Huzoor Anwar (ABA) to keep Atfal busy and active, and to stay away from excessive video games, Majlis Atfalul Ahmadiyya Canada held the National Ahmadiyya Basketball League. The league was conducted from October 8th, 2019 – February 11th, 2020.

This year the Ahmadiyya Basketball League for Atfal consisted of special training sessions, very competitive season, playoffs, and a special All-star day which included a competitive free throw shootout, three point shootout, skills challenge, and an All-star game for three levels of Mayar (Ages 7-8, 9-11, 12-15).

This year there were 108 Atfal that registered for ABL and participated from all across the Greater Toronto Area. Each participant was given a reversible customized jersey and a basketball upon registration.

With the success of the National League, four regions took the initiative to simultaneously begin their own basketball leagues, as Canada is widespread with over 2,000 Atfal.

May Allah the Al-Mighty continue to help Atfal develop further focus on their prayers and remain close to the institution of Khilafat. Ameen.

Through ABL, a strong and unique bond was developed within Atfal across Toronto irrespective of their Majalis or Halqa. The Mayar Kabir games were four quarters of 8 minutes each, whereas Mayar Saghir games were four quarters of 5 minutes each.

With the success of the National League, four regions took the initiative to simultaneously begin their own basketball leagues, as Canada is widespread with over 2,000 Atfal.

May Allah the Al-Mighty continue to help Atfal develop further focus on their prayers and remain close to the institution of Khilafat. Ameen.
