TRYOUT SESSIONS FILLING UP: Basketball Manitoba is pleased to announce a new Manitoba Provincial Team training model for the summer of 2021.  The goal for this summer's Provincial Team program will be to identify potential athletes for the 2022 15U and 17U Provincial Teams and the 18U Canada Games teams as well as provide a high-level training camp experience to the selected groups.

Tryouts for this summer’s 15U and 17U male and female Provincial Training Groups will take place August 13-15, 2021 at the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre (aka Sport Manitoba Courts) where four training groups of 20 athletes each at the following age groups will be selected…

  • 17U Male - 20 Athletes - Born 2004 or 2005 
  • 17U Female - 20 Athletes - Born 2004 or 2005 
The training group selected will participate in a 2 week (10 sessions) training camp with their Provincial Team coaches from August 23-27 and August 30 to September 3, 2021 (10 sessions of 2 hours per day will be offered over the 2 week training period).  

This summer's training camps will be led by our Provincial Team Head Coaches and their coaching staff…  


  • 17U Male Canada Games Head Coach Jonathan Janzen 
  • 17U Female Canada Games Head Coach Alyssa Cox (Grant)
  • 15U Male Head Coach Lenin Mangaron

There will be NO COST to those selected for this summer's Manitoba Provincial Team Training program.  A $20.00 tryout fee will be charged at registration for the August 13-15 tryouts. 

The tryouts and training camp will follow all current Manitoba Public Health Guidelines and are subject to change along with public health orders at that time including the total number of participants permitted in an indoor space at a time.
