Prior to the Assessment Camp, an Open ID Camp for athletes born in 2000, 2001, and 2002 was also held.

The Assessment Camp was an opportunity for staff to evaluate players ahead of next summer’s FIBA U18 Americas Championship and FIBA U17 Basketball World Cup.

A Western Canada Open ID Camp will be held at Ross Sheppard High School in Edmonton, Alberta on the weekend of November 10-12, 2017. More information will be released shortly.

A National Team Invitational Tryout will be held on Easter Weekend (March 30 – April 2, 2018).

Canadian male athletes born in the above listed years, who have a valid Canadian passport, are able to attend either Open ID Camp, regardless of their home province.

Earlier this summer, Canada Basketball and the Niagara Sports Commission announced that the city of St. Catharines will host the 2018 edition of the FIBA U18 Americas Championship.  Canada will also travel to Rosario and Santa Fe, Argentina for the FIBA U17 Basketball World Cup from June 30 – July 8, 2018.
