  • An athlete may play up an age division, but cannot move down to a younger age division. No exceptions. 
  • Athletes may participate on only one (1) team in the tournament.  The player is considered 'committed for the championships' once the online registration has been submitted to Basketball Manitoba.  
  • Teams must consist of a minimum of 8 athletes to a maximum of 15 athletes.  No exceptions.
  • Basketball Manitoba reserves the right to reclassify teams into the appropriate division based on their past performances and based on the overall tournament entry numbers.

COACH / VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS 

  1. RESPECT IN SPORT.  All teams must have any coach (including head and assistant) sitting on the team bench complete the online 3-hour Sport Manitoba Respect in Sport program by the start of this event. Basketball Manitoba will verify for full completion of the RIS Program. If you had completed this 5 years ago or later, you must re-certify again with the new material. Teams who have not met this requirement will not be permitted to participate in this event. Complete the course online at http://ris.basketballmanitoba.ca.
  2. COACHING GENDER REQUIREMENT.  A minimum of one member of each coaching staff (not including managers or trainers) is to be of the same gender of the team they are coaching (i.e. girls teams must have a minimum of one adult female coach on the bench at all times and boys teams must have a minimum of one adult male coach on the bench at all times).  Ideally, this person is a member of the coaching staff or at a minimum can be a same-gendered parent of one of the team members and must be present on the team bench for the duration of the game.  Failure to comply will see the game in question defaulted to the opposing team.    
  3. COACH CERTIFICATION.  Head coaches, in their 4th year and beyond with the team, must complete their respective NCCP certifications. Information is at http://nccp.basketballmanitoba.ca
  4. COACHES COACHING MULTIPLE TEAMS.  Basketball Manitoba strongly suggests that each team have its own coaching staff. Due to the large size of this tournament and multiple sites, Basketball Manitoba is not able to make any special schedule requests to accommodate coaches working with multiple teams.
