Support Lakehead Men's Basketball


Our team would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our Back Court Club!  The Back Court Club is the official off-campus support group created to foster the growth and development of the Men’s Basketball program at Lakehead University. The Club is driven by a volunteer committee under the direction of Head Coach Manny Furtado

The Club provides an avenue for alumni, friends, family, fans and the community to be part of our Men’s Basketball Team. With your support, we can continue our commitment to excellence.  Each year the allocated budget to the Men’s Basketball program covers only a portion of the needed finances to compete with the top programs in Ontario. The funds raised through the Back Court Club will directly benefit our players, such as:

 Scholarship opportunities for Men’s basketball student athletes

 Summer and part-time winter employment for our student

 Meal per diem on road trips

 Non-conference travel in the pre-season to prepare for CIS competition

I would like to personally thank everyone who has supported the program and hope we can rely on your support going into the 2015/2016 season. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to get involved with the Back Court Club. We look forward to seeing you in Thunderdome this season.

Yours In Basketball,

Manny Furtado
