Basketball Manitoba is pleased to announce a new special fundraising initiative.  The Three Point Club has been designed to raise funds to support members of Manitoba's Provincial Teams and Centre for Performance programs.

Individuals, groups or corporate members of the community, which make a financial gift to the program will allow us to continue delivering a quality program to a wide demographic.  By joining the Three Point Club, you will be recognized on the Basketball Manitoba website and receive an official tax receipt to recognize your gift and know that 100% of your donation is going to help a child pursue their basketball dreams.

The three cornerstone principles (or points) of the Three Point Club are to support ACCESS, DEVELOPMENT and EXCELLENCE.

Our male and female programs represent the best of Manitoba's young basketball talent and prepares athletes for athletic and personal excellence. They are coached by some of Manitoba's top coaches.

The Manitoba Provincial Team program has experienced unprecedented success over the past few years, bringing home 7 national medals in the last 4 years!  We need your help to keep this tradition of success alive! 


The programs are funded primarily by Basketball Manitoba, approximately 75% of the costs, while the remaining 25%, is left to each individual family. For some, this is not a challenge but, with an increasing number of players, this is a serious problem to manage, thus creating a barrier to limit their opportunity.    

100% of all funds raised through this initiative will be directed exclusively to the Manitoba Provincial Team and Centre for Performance programs to athletes in need of support.  The costs involved in the program include competition and training costs, travel and accommodations, equipment and insurance costs. The project will increase accessibility to the provincial team program to all Manitobans.





Being a member of the Manitoba Provincial Team Program and Centre for Performance is a major step for our most talented basketball athletes. These are the young men and women who are potential university and college players and those who will have an opportunity to succeed at the national and international levels.

Our provincial team program models the major concepts of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD). At the 15 and under and 17 and under age levels, the major emphasis is on the Train to Train and Train to Compete stages. All coaches are well-versed on the Canadian Basketball Athlete
Development Model. The program is committed to the following:
  • Optimal training, competition and recovery programming with relation to biological development and maturation
  • Equal opportunity for participation and competition
  • Athlete-centered, coach-driven and administration, sport science and sponsor supported

We must find a way to keep the cost of our programs at a level which allows access to all.  Basketball is traditionally a sport played by all cross sections of society. With costs constantly on the rise, we are seeing some of our top athletes not getting involved in programs and are not receiving the proper training and support they require.



This is where you come in as a member of the Three Point Club.

  1. It's great to see our young basketball players doing so well at the provincial level. With regards to the CP program, I do not believe that the players selected are our top athletes or basketball players at this age. Sorry
