g.a.b runs WNBA event hosted by Tangerine Bank on November 13, 2022 It was a dream come true for g.a.b to work with the WNBA and showcase our programming that builds confidence in girls! It was equally empowering to watch majority of the g.a.b staff who led the event were once former g.a.b participants.

"Get Outside And Train" (GOAT) program - Our COVID-19 Response From April - June, 2022, g.a.b was able to get girls active again by offering free basketball training outdoors as our response to COVID-19's isolation of families and physical activity. A very special thanks to Jumpstart's Sport Relief Fund for allowing us to offer this free program to our community members. g.a.b was one of nearly 300 sport & recreation organizations across Canada to receive grant funding.
15 Year Anniversary July 2020 would have marked g.a.b's 15 year anniversary but all plans were cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
