TORONTO, ON - The 2015 15U and 17U National Championships will take place in Edmonton, Alberta and Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Female Tournament will be held at the Saville Community Sports Centre from July 24 - 29 in Edmonton and Saint Mary’s University will host the Male Tournament from August 3 – 8 in Halifax.

“It’s always exciting to see the talent that each province has to offer. These National Championships are a great opportunity for players and coaches to display their skills and solidify themselves in Canada Basketball history,” said Michele O’Keefe, Executive Director of Canada Basketball. “Nationals are an important event where the provincial and territorial teams take pride in competing for the national title.”

The 15U and 17U girls will compete in the Saville Community Sports Centre in Edmonton, which is also the training home to Canada’s Senior Women’s National team.

“After having the privilege to host this event last year, Basketball Alberta is extremely honored and excited to be hosting this event,” said Paul Sir, Executive Director, Basketball Alberta. “We are committed to creating a true celebration of our great game in Canada and make lifelong memories as we welcome teams, families, coaches and spectators to our community.”

Welcoming the 15U and 17U Boys in Halifax adds another chapter to Nova Scotia’s rich history of hosting basketball events, including the CIS and AUS championships.

David Wagg, Executive Director for Basketball Nova Scotia, is thrilled to be holding this event. "Basketball Nova Scotia is excited and honoured to be hosting the 2015 Canada Basketball U15 and U17 Boys’ National Championships. We look forward to welcoming all athletes, coaches, officials, and families from across the country, and relish the opportunity to showcase our East Coast hospitality."
