Basketball PEI is pleased to announce its Provincial Team programming for the 2017 summer season.
Our Canada Games programs have been up and running for over 2 years now in preparation for this summer’s Canada Games being held in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Both our men’s and women’s teams selected their training groups through an open tryout process in October 2015. These groups have been together since this time, including participation at last summer’s U17 National Championships. The final Canada Games teams will be selected in April from the existing training groups.
Basketball PEI will not be sending male or female teams to the U15 National Championships this summer. Instead, we will be focusing on preparation and development for provincial team programming leading up to next summer’s National Championships.
On the boys side, we will be running both U16 and U14 Development teams. The U16 program will be focused on developing athletes for next summer’s U17 National Championships while the U14 team will be preparing a team for next summer’s U15 National Championships. On the girls side, we will be running a U14 Development team, again with a focus on preparation for next summer’s U15 National Championships. All of these teams will feature an open tryout process. We would also encourage interested U15 and U17 overage athletes to participate in the upcoming tryout process for these teams as both the U14 and U16 teams will be permitted to carry overage athletes.
Coaches will be selected by the end of March with tryouts beginning in early April. Please monitor the Basketball PEI website for tryout details.
