Basketball Manitoba is pleased to announce details on our High Performance plans for the upcoming fall and winter!  The Canada Basketball Center for Performance Program is designed to bring together male and female basketball athletes aged 12-17 who have the desired attributes and potential to develop into an elite level athlete. The tryouts for the Centre for Performance programs for 12-17 boys and 12-16 girls along with a new pilot program for the 17U Girls Provincial Team will run September 10-12, 2010 at Red River College, North Gym (2055 Notre Dame Ave.) in Winnipeg (exact times below). The programs will follow with regular training sessions from October to April. The program will be paused from December to March  to accommodate for the school basketball season.  Important Note: The 17U Girls Provincial Team Tryouts will occur at the same time as the Centre for Performance tryouts on September 10-12 at Red River College.  Those interested in trying out for both programs, are asked to attend the first 17U Provincial Team tryouts on the Friday evening.  Those not chosen for the 17U team will be asked to return to the regular CP tryouts over the next few days of the tryouts. Players can only participate on one program at a time.
