EVENT POSTPONED:  Due to a number of conflicts and other factors, the Basketball Manitoba Female Basketball Summit scheduled for Sunday September 28, is being postponed to a future date.  If you are interested in being involved with this event in the future, you can still RSVP below to get on our contact list for this event.

Basketball Manitoba is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its first ever Female Basketball Summit which is set for Sunday September 28 at Sport Manitoba.  A top priority for Basketball Manitoba is increasing female participation in the game as players, coaches and officials. In an attempt to develop specific strategies in this area and give our board some direction, we are hosting an open forum on Sunday, September 28, 1:00 - 4:00 pm in the Conference Centre (Lower Level) at the Sport Manitoba Sport for Life Centre at 145 Pacific Avenue in Winnipeg. We are inviting many players, coaches and officials to participate in the event.

A part of the afternoon will be a panel with four individuals (two players, a coach and an official) giving their perspectives, experiences and ideas relative to the topic. After a brief introduction and some data to put the topic in some context, each panel member will be given about 5 minutes to speak about her experiences in the game including any challenges, perceived roadblocks and ideas to get more females involved in the game.

After the panel and a short break, we will form discussion groups which will hopefully give our Basketball Manitoba Board some specific direction in this priority area.

If you are currently involved in the female basketball community as a player, coach, official, administrator or in another capacity, we welcome you to join us at the summit.  Please RSVP your attendance to the event by completing the below form before Friday September 26 at 12 noon.

We thank you in advance for your commitment and dedication to the game and your support of Basketball Manitoba.
