Adam B. Halawa is an Ottawa native who has always had a passion for sports.

Growing up, he played multiple sports, but it was basketball that quickly became his favourite pastime. He appreciated basketball for its accessibility.

“You just need a ball and a net,” says Adam.

However, he saw a gap in programming for low-income youth, so in 2015, he founded Ball Till I Fall Canada.

This league started small, but quickly grew. It’s now comprised of 120 youth. The group’s target age is 17 and up. They have a league as well as drop-in play hours, and their home courts are University of Ottawa and Canterbury.

Adam has created a partnership with Ottawa Community Housing and has been supporting low-income youth across the city.

Every day he sees the benefits of community sports for youth through growing confidence and improved leadership abilities.

The Ball Till I Fall Night League is currently accepting registrations. For more details or to register please visit balltillifall.ca.
