Ernie Oei Scholarship

Ernie Oei spent most of his life teaching and coaching basketball. From elementary to high school, Girls and Boys, Ernie has been involved in Head and Assistant Coaching teams, camps, and clinics. Ernie has given back to the game by refereeing as well as many years of tutoring. Ernie lost his fight with cancer on November 4, 2016 but always wanted every kid to have a chance to play in our family club VanCity Basketball Academy.

VanCity Basketball Academy believes that no kid should have to miss out on any of our programs because of money. VanCity Basketball tries to help sponsor every kid in need. However, as our programs grows and more boys and girls of all ages join the VanCity family, we need help to make sure no kid misses out. Since we are trying to keep the costs of our programs as affordable as possible for all families, we are hoping for donations for the kids that really need the help.

The Ernie Oei Youth Basketball Scholarship fund to help all VanCity Basketball Academy players in need of funding to play in our programs or at post secondary will give away 100 percent of what is received to help those who need it most. We hope this helps Ernie’s legacy live on. Thank you everyone for donating in the name of Ernie. We love you forever.
