"What ever you do, do all to the glory of God" - 1 Corinthians 10:31
In 2012 Champs' director Jonathan Serjue unfortunately suffered a severe knee injury while preparing for a visit to Walla Walla Adventist University, Washington. This injury prevented him from playing basketball for a long time and pursuing his dream. After successful knee surgery in 2014, Jonathan turned this negative into a positive by inspiring the next generation through Champs Basketball. Studying in the certificate of entrepreneurship at McGill University helped propel the expansion of Champs and in 2016 he also completed a conditioning instructor certificate, which greatly contributed to his passion for health and fitness.
Basketball is often more than just a game, it acts as an avenue for kids and teens alike to embrace teamwork, leadership, and physical play, which ultimately creates both a joyful and positive atmosphere. With the assistance of fun, enthusiastic and energetic coaches, Champs has made this a reality and our impact has quickly been felt by the Montreal community at large.
