    Basketball Manitoba is pleased to announced details on the 2019 Provincial Team Tryouts for the upcoming summer. The tryouts for the program will occur May 24-26, 2019 at the University of Winnipeg Duckworth Centre (400 Spence Street in Winnipeg, MB).  The summer of 2019 will see a total of 6 Provincial Teams formed at the male and female 17U, 16U and 15U age levels.  

    All six Provincial Teams will compete in warm-up events in Canada and the USA prior to heading to their respective National Championships or Western Canada Games later this summer.

      SPECIAL TRYOUT NOTES


      Age Advancement
      In the fall of 2008, the Basketball Manitoba Board of Directors passed a motion permitting a player of a younger age the option to play an age up for a Provincial Team.  Any younger age athlete who wishes to try-out for an older age program is welcome to do so.  A decision can be made by the older coaching staff and Selection Committee after the first session if the younger athlete will continue with the older tryouts or will be asked to return to the younger tryouts.  Any athlete looking to try-out at an older age must contact Dan Becker first.

      Provincial Team Selection Policy
      Effective April 1, 2012, the Basketball Manitoba Board of Directors passed a motion on a new Provincial Team Selection Policy. As part of our commitment to providing a transparent and equitable Provincial Team selection procedure, there is a need for a consistent policy to protect the integrity of the Provincial Team program and its coaches.  Under this new approach, Basketball Manitoba will strive to produce a competitive program that stays true to the Long Term Athletic Development Model.  Read more...

      Team Commitment In June & July
      Basketball Manitoba has moved the Provincial Team tryouts to occur in late may, avoiding much of the club basketball season.  Athletes selected on one of the Manitoba Provincial Teams will be expected to give a full commitment to the program for all practices, training sessions and competitions.  Special situations will be reviewed on a case by case basis.  If you have any questions, please contact Dan Becker.
