Basketball Manitoba is reminding all active basketball clubs in the province of the window of time that tryouts for next year's programs are permitted to begin. As has been the agreement for the past number of years, no tryout for next year's club programs shall begin before the third Friday of August, which will be Friday, August 16, 2024. The time restriction will allow for an equal starting point for clubs to plan and begin their programs for the next season and allow for some needed rest and recovery time away from basketball for players, coaches and families. Clubs can continue their tryouts through August and into September.

2024 MANITOBA GAMES: A special note for 2024 is that the Manitoba Games will be held in Dauphin, Manitoba, from August 11 to 17, involving players in the 15-17 age range from around Manitoba. The female portion of the Games will occur from August 14 to 17. Please note this rare conflict in time for female tryouts when setting your plans.  

This information and other club timelines and policies are detailed at
