This will keep all levels of basketball in Manitoba in a shutdown mode of all indoor and outdoor operations (games, practices, training, in-person meetings, etc.).
Casual or pick up basketball at outdoor public courts in Manitoba must also follow these changes and can only invovle those residing in the same residence only. These changes will also formally cancel the 2021 Manitoba Basketball 3x3 Championships that are traditionally held in the middle of June.
