The objective is to provide, organize basketball team club for their own children in less expensive way. The families and friends who wish to joined the club does not need to go try out, they gather players from invites of family/friends referrals. There is no registration cost involve in joining the club team, fees and other expenses like uniforms, gyms, tournament & league fees are divided in their respective division/teams.  Basketball fundamentals and coaching is being led by Head Coach Ruel Maranan, but most of the time being handled by volunteered Coach/Parents.

In 2015 the club was revitalized thru the efforts of Arnold Capucion / a volunteered coach of 2004 team, including adding the first female blizzards basketball team in August 2023 - born 2010 girls.

Divisional Play is from ages 10 to 16, and runs from U10 up through the U17 – all divided by Boys and Girls . All games are played within the Winnipeg, tournaments (location varies)

Practices are generally one time per week, held in several locations. Practice dates and times are not published until closer to the start of the season in mid-October as we get players registered, teams arranged and know how many teams we need to book in the gyms.
