Basketball Manitoba and the WMBA are reminding all active basketball clubs in the province of the window of time that tryouts for next year's programs are permitted to begin. As has been the agreement for the past number of years, no tryout for next year's club programs shall begin before the second Friday of August which this year will be Friday August 11, 2017. The time restriction that has been put in place will allow for an equal starting point of time for clubs to begin their programs for the next season and allow for some needed rest and recovery time away from basketball for players, coaches and families.
Club Programs are reminded of the 2017 Canada Games that are scheduled for Winnipeg this summer from July 28 to August 13. Basketball will be played July 29 to August 4, 2017 at the University of Winnipeg Duckworth Centre and new Sport Manitoba gyms currently under construction. Even though the basketball portion of the Games will be completed by August 11, many of the facilities that clubs normally access may be off limits (including the local universities and colleges) with the event still underway. Many of your players, parents and coaches may also be involved in the Games as a volunteer or participant as well.
This information along with other club timelines and policies are detailed at http://club.basketballmanitoba.ca.
Clubs looking to communicate their tryout details with Basketball Manitoba and the WMBA can email it at any time to the addresses noted below to have it communicated out by web, email and social media to the basketball community. Only tryouts occurring on or after the above noted date will be communicated to the masses.
