Our goal, through the clubs, is to expose and develop Basketball Province wide. Teams may have to travel and refunds will not be given to teams after they register.  We will work hard to identify hosts as soon as possible.

 

Tournaments are scheduled from Friday night to Sunday afternoon but, if a division is too large, some Thursday night games may be required.  Traveling teams will not be required to play on Thursday.
