Calling all Falcons and basketball supporters!
Langara Falcons Athletics has a tradition of excellence. With a championship history in the sports of basketball, soccer and golf, Falcon’s athletics provides a unique athlete experience, supporting them in the classroom and on the field or court.
To celebrate Langara’s anniversary and the proud history of Falcons athletics, it’s time to honour one of our own – former student athlete, faculty member, and coach, Kevin Hanson. One of Canada’s most successful basketball coaches, Kevin got his start at Langara. As a student, alumni, faculty member and coach, Kevin Hanson has had a profound effect on the students. Kevin led the Falcons to five BCCAA provincial championships and two CCAA national championships. As a decorated athlete, an Outstanding Alumni recipient, instructor and coach, Kevin’s legacy spans over 35 years. He has continued his tradition as one of Canada’s most accomplished head basketball coaches supporting and mentoring student athletes, since moving to UBC in 2000.
A group of Kevin’s supporters and former student athletes, known as the Starting LineUp, want to give back to the program and create a new scholarship to support student athletes at Langara. Join the Starting Lineup and ensure that tomorrow’s student athletes have what they need to achieve their full potential.
