"You can't make recreational basketball feel like the pro experience" - Every Other League
"...Challenge Accepted!" - DTBL
When our team set out to establish the Downtown Toronto Basketball League, it was not enough for us to simply provide you the fairest competition catered towards your skill level, the best officiating or access to the best and most easily accessible courts in the city of Toronto. Our goal was to go above and beyond what any other recreational sports league in this city will do for its players to make their basketball feel important; to matter. It is to offer the best overall basketball package on the market pound for pound.
History matters to us. It matters to almost all sports fans. We all dreamt of making the pros in our respective sport of choice one day hoping to end up with our face on the cover of a sports card and our career stats neatly presented on the back. 99.9% of us will never get to experience that feeling. But here at the DTBL, we asked ourselves if the impossible was actually possible.
"Could recreational sports be made to somehow feel important?"
"Could 99.9% somehow become 99.8% over night with a little help?"
"Do your PPG and FG% really matter in a league against competition that have never played competitively before in their lives?"
The answer is a resounding Absolutely! That's because you're averaging 1.5 more points on 5% better shooting this season compared to last and that matters to you. Or at least it should because you're improving. Perhaps you're not performing up to your expectations this season compared to last and now you know what you need to work on in the off season.
The point is that your personal history matters to you and it matters to us. Keeping track of each player's entire career in our database is one of the essential reasons the team at DTBL feels is necessary to give you the player a reason to keep returning to us season after season. Whether it be wins, losses championships, team dynasties or personal stats, we want you to see it all on your own personalized player profile. Just like a sports card.
