    Manitoba's Kirby Schepp to Lead Canadian U16 National Basketball Team for Summer 2019



    TORONTO, ONT. (May 21, 2019) – Canada Basketball is pleased to announce the 18 athletes invited to the U16 men's national team training camp.


    Head Coach Kirby Schepp returns and will be joined by assistants Jason Dawkins (Ontario Basketball), Kevin Duffie (Acadia University) and Patrick Tatham (McMaster University).

    The FIBA U16 Americas Championship 2019 in Belém, Brazil (June 3-9) will qualify the top-four teams to the FIBA U17 Basketball World Cup 2020.

    Canada is in Group B along with hosts Brazil, Puerto Rico and Uruguay.

    Canada earned a silver medal at the FIBA U16 Americas Championship 2017 in Formosa, Argentina. This will be Canada’s sixth appearance since the FIBA U16 Americas Championship began in 2009, with the country medalling in each of their previous five tournaments.

    Prior to the training camp, Canada Basketball’s Men High-Performance Program held an assessment camp on May 20 for Canadian male athletes born in either 2003 and 2004.  In addition, open identification sessions were held in Toronto and Edmonton last fall.

    A full list of athletes, coaches and team schedule can be found below.  Training camp will take place at University of Toronto Mississauga and is closed to the public. Media are invited to post-practice scrums on the following dates:

    Canada is currently ranked 2nd worldwide in the FIBA World Ranking Presented by NIKE.
