The Canadian Basketball League (CBL), a development league, will hold Tryouts throughout 2017. These events will challenge CBL hopefuls via full-court games and drills to showcase their skills for CBL personnel and coaches, with hopes of receiving a contract offer for the 2017-2018 season. Sign up now if you think you have what it takes to make it in the Canadian Basketball League.

Participants will achieve a one-of-a-kind experience, including hands-on instruction from team coaches, chalk-talk by a CBL coach and an official CBL t-shirt for tryout participation.

*we will not be giving away a CBL practice jersey*
