The National Championships are a stepping stone to Canada's national team program. A number of past participants have gone on to represent Canada internationally - most recently in this summer's FIBA U17 and U18 competitions. 

All games will be played at the Richard J. Currie Center in Fredericton, NB.  New Brunswick's finest fitness and event facility is also one of the best in North America.  The five-storey, 139,000-square foot facility contains three full-sized gyms, an indoor track, state of the art Human Performance Lab and much more. With 180 parking spaces, private meeting rooms, a double-court gymnasium, and the beautiful Long Hall the Currie Center is ideal for large events.

Basketball New Brunswick last hosted the 15U and 17U Women's National Championships in 2012.
