      Age Advancement
      In the fall of 2008, the Basketball Manitoba Board of Directors passed a motion permitting a player of a younger age the option to play an age up on a Provincial Team.  Any younger age athlete who wishes to tryout for an older age program is welcome to do so.  A decision can be made by the older coaching staff and Selection Committee after the first session if the younger athlete will continue with the older tryouts or will be asked to return to the younger tryouts.  Any athlete looking to tryout at an older age must contact Dan Becker first.

      Provincial Team Selection Policy
      Effective April 1, 2012, the Basketball Manitoba Board of Directors passed a motion on a new Provincial Team Selection Policy. As part of our commitment to providing a transparent and equitable Provincial Team selection procedure, there is a need for a consistent policy to protect the integrity of the Provincial Team program and its coaches.  Under this new approach, Basketball Manitoba will strive to produce a competitive program that stays true to the Long Term Athletic Development Model.  Read more...

      Team Commitment In June & July
      Basketball Manitoba has moved the Provincial Team tryouts to occur in late may, avoiding much of the club basketball season.  Athletes selected on one of the Manitoba Provincial Teams will be expected to give a full commitment to the program for all practices, training sessions and competitions.
