The Manitoba Rebels Basketball Club have announced its tryout schedule for the 2015-2016 season.  Details include...

The club follows the Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) model set forth by Canada Basketball and ensures a minimum of 2 practices to 1 game ensuring correct skill and development vs. application of skills and development through games/scrimmages. We focus on having qualified coaches, all supported through the National Certification Program to run practices and games for the youth. We provide full transparency in the cost of our program and in turn also run fundraising throughout the year to cover costs. Currently Dirk Leavesley is the Director of the MB Rebels program and Scott Kirkpatrick is the Technical Director of the program.

Our teams will compete in the Manitoba Basketball League as well as in province tournaments. Out of province tournaments including the United States will also be on our agenda. Plans this year include travelling as far as North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois for the 2015/2016 season. Provinces may be Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
