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 end of the Canada Basketball National Championships and the 2022 Canada Games which will make this year occur no earlier than the third Friday of August which will be Friday, August 19, 2022.  The basketball portion of the Canada Games in Niagara Falls will be the last summer event to end on August 14.  Over 75 of the top basketball players in Manitoba will be representing the province at these events, thus the reason for clubs starting the following week.

The time restriction that has been put in place will allow for an equal starting point of time for clubs to 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.

This information along with other club timelines and policies are detailed at

Clubs looking to communicate their tryout details with Basketball Manitoba can email it at any time to the address noted below to have it communicated out by web, email and social media to the basketball community.  Only tryouts occurring on or after the above noted date will be communicated on the Basketball Manitoba communication platforms (web, social media and email).  We will post all club tryouts on the Basketball Manitoba website and will be grouped specifically at this link...
