                                  Over 10,000 players, coaches and referees are registered through their respective associations or directly through programmings such as the Manitoba Provincial Team, Centre for Performance, Regional Training Centres, Club Championships, Junior High Invitational Tournament, Manitoba Games and the Canada Quest 3x3 among others with Basketball Manitoba.

                                  Even though Basketball Manitoba, as we know it today, is 43 years old, it is important to note that, through the efforts of many people in our past, the organization and administration of basketball in our province started as early as 1950, if not earlier. We are indebted to all those people who built the foundation for what exists today.
