BC Provincial Zone Team Program
U12, U13, and U14

The Zone Team Program is held every odd-numbered year as a development program for the BC Summer Games, which are held in even-numbered years.  This program will also identify possible athletes for Basketball BC’s High Performance Program. 

The U14 teams play traditional 5-on-5 games while the U13 and U12 teams play 3x3 basketball.  The 3x3 game has been added to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games.       

For 2019:
U14 - athletes must be born in 2005 or later
U13 - athletes must be born in 2006 or later
U12 – athletes must be born in 2007 or later

Athletes interested in playing on a Zone Team must be chosen from a Selection Camp.  The camps will be held in communities across BC in April.  These camps are organized by local coaches and will offer players of varying experience the opportunity to enhance the development of their skills during a 6-hour camp.  The coaches are selected by Basketball BC though an application process. 

Coaches in each zone will evaluate players at the camps and select 10 players of each gender to participate on their Zone Teams.  Selected participants take part in additional training and skill development.  The practice schedule will be communicated by each coach.  For U12 and U13, the teams of ten will be split into two teams of 5.

Camp schedules will be posted in February/March 2019

The Zone teams will represent their regions in the following competitions:

  • Basketball BC U12 and U13 3x3 Zone Championship – June 1-3 Langley Events Centre, TWU
  • Basketball BC U14 5x5 Zone Championships – June 1-3 Langley Events Centre, TWU
  • Additional competition opportunities in Canada and the US are an elective part of this program - participation is determined via input from team participants, parents and coaches.  An additional fee may be required.
