The Manitoba Magic Basketball Club have announced details on its 3rd annual Hoops that Heal Basketball Tournament.  The event will run October 9-11 at the University of Manitoba Investor's Group Athletic Centre. Net proceeds from the event will go directly to the Arthritis Society of Manitoba. Your participation in this tournament will help raise much needed funds for this debilitating disease. In 2008, the event was able to raise $900 to give straight to the Arthritis Society. Please help reach the goal of $1500 for 2009!  For full details...

Arthritis is among Canada’s most common chronic conditions, with more than four million

Canadians affected by this debilitating disease. Arthritis affects more adults than cancer, heart

disease, respiratory conditions and spinal cord trauma, having a serious impact on quality of life.

I am doing this as this disease has impacted my family as I’m sure it has with many of yours.

The Tournament:

I’d like to be able to offer the following Divisions:

  • Gr 6 Girls (1998); Gr 7 Girls (1997); Gr 8 Girls (1996); Gr 9 Girls (1995); Gr 10/11 Girls (1993-

  • 94); & Gr 12 Girls (1992)

  • Gr 6 Boys (1998); Gr 7 Boys (1997); Gr 8 Boys (1996); Gr 9 Boys (1995); Gr 10 Boys (1994); &

  • Gr 11/12 Boys (1992-93)

A minimum of 4 Teams will be needed to proceed with a division.

Strict registration deadline will be Saturday, September 26th 11:00 p.m.; however, I’d

appreciate it if you can email your intent to register ASAP so I have an idea on divisions.

For those of you that cannot join this tournament but would like to support the Arthritis Society,

charitable tax donations can be sent to my address (payable to the “Arthritis Society”) and I will

make sure to return a charitable tax receipt to your desired address.

The cost per team is $275.00 CDN.

Proof of insurance must be provided and teams without insurance must pay an extra

$25.00 to Basketball Manitoba.

Please send your completed registration form with a cheque payable to Manitoba Magic

Basketball Club to the following address:
