    Founded in 1972 under another name, what is now known as Omaha Christian Academy began by serving 30 elementary school students with a faculty of only four teachers. Changing to its current name in 1988 and transferring to the former General Motors training facility three years later, the Academy then occupied two other spaces before settling into its permanent location.

    In 2009, classes kicked off in the academy’s current location after a $1.7 million capital campaign and after many years of growth.

    Today, Omaha Christian Academy services students from pre-kindergarten all the way up to high school, preparing the next generation for post-secondary education and beyond into their professional lives. In addition to educational excellence, the school is also home to a robust athletics program which includes teams in sports such as football, cheerleading, volleyball, basketball, soccer, baseball and more.

    It’s been over 35 years since we started designing basketball hoops in the  “friendly” town of Almonte, Ontario.  Those humble roots have helped keep us grounded and focused over the years as we continued our perpetual growth, first growing across Canada, then into the United States and now at an international level.

    Serving clientele in the lower 48 and Canada on a regular basis, we have since expanded into the far reaches of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.  In addition to Ireland, Uganda, Kuwait among many others, we continue to focus on growing here on our own turf and on a global scale.

    American Customers Take Advantage of Strong United States Dollar

    In tandem with low oil prices, the U.S. dollar has strengthened as of late. While there are many speculative theories on the connection between the two, most believe the connection lies in the fact that when crude prices increase, more U.S. dollars head out of the country, while the opposite typically exists when crude prices are low.

    No matter which way you slice it, or which theory you subscribe to, there is no denying the strength of the greenback, especially when compared to the Canadian dollar. The chart below illustrates the growth of the U.S. dollar over the past three years in comparison with the Canadian dollar.


    As you can see, the American dollar has experienced a 43% increase since 2013, as compared to the Canadian ‘loonie’. Our American customers have not been in this powerful a position from a buyer’s standpoint since May 1, 2003; the last time the American dollar was at this level.
