Students learn that despite the distance between us the plight of all people are the same and what happens in other countries has a direct effect on our community. Through this program our students get an opportunity to travel and volunteer in communities around the world. In the past we have facilitated P.H.A.S.E. 1 Step Team members to take trip to perform outreach in Nairobi Kenya and taken a team of inner-city basketball players to Duoia France. Ongoing projects include the support of Calabar Basic School in Trelawny, Jamaica and the latest global efforts of P.H.A.S.E. 1 through  P.H.A.S.E. 1 Academyraising funds to assist student athletes from countries all over world in search of alternative educational and athlete development programs in the United States.

P.H.A.S.E. 1 STEP Team

P.H.A.S.E. 1 founders Wayne Dawkins and Cherilyn Scobie were encouraged as educators to use their talents to engage youth. One such talent they both possessed was the ability to Step Dance. A dance form originated from the mining slaves of South Africa many years ago, involving coordinated claps and stops to create rhythmic beats. 

Rising Stars Showcase

A precursor to P.H.A.S.E. 1’s famous All Canada Classic, the Rising Stars Showcase was a key component under the Rumble in the T-Dot umbrella for the past 9 years. The Rising Stars Showcase for boys and girls grade 7-11 was created to identify  and encourage the young players that will become the future of Canadian basketball.

P.H.A.S.E. 1 Academies

Many of Canada’s young athletes have been heading south of the border in search of alternative educational and basketball development programs. Many of these athletes end up pay large sums of money to unaccredited organization and waste precious time and resources. Therefore, to better support our athletes goals and dreams both here in Canada and the United States P.H.A.S.E. 1 developed our own academies for student athletes. 


P.H.A.S.E. 1 created the National Prep School Athletic Association Prep Basketball League in 2012 to allow serious Canadian athletes the opportunity to stay home and receive the opportunities that U.S. prep schools offer.  Talented Canadian ballplayers aspiring to become post-secondary student athletes now had the chance to receive the training, exposure, and competition necessary to be prepared for the next level – all while remaining in Canada....
