About Us

The Niagara River Lions had an incredible inaugural season in the NBL Canada in 2015-2016! The team plays out of the Meridian Centre in downtown St. Catharines, sharing a home with the OHL’s Niagara IceDogs and the CLL's Niagara Lock Monsters. The team, the Region’s first for professional basketball, will be back in action starting this December.

Before the team took to the hardcourt for the first time in late 2015, an online contest was used to help name the team, with the final selection of “River Lions” being based upon the Niagara Region Coat of Arms which prominently features the River Lion – a creature that symbolizes pride and strength of community. The Niagara River Lions are proud to be members of the Niagara Region and will continue to work tirelessly to be actively engaged with the community and to live up to the River Lions moniker.

Season one was fantastic, but season two is going to be EVEN better! Don't miss a single moment of the action when the River Lions take to the Meridian Centre hardcourt this season!
