18 Athletes Invited to Cadet Men’s National Team Camp

Eighteen athletes from across the country have been invited to participate in the Cadet Men’s National Team Easter camp at Humber College – North Campus. The camp will take place from April 3-April 6.  
 
“We're excited to bring this talented young group together. The majority of these athletes have been developed by their community clubs, schools, the Provincial Service Organizations and Canada Basketball as well” said Rowan Barrett, Executive Vice President and Assistant General Manager of Men’s High Performance. “We have also assembled an experienced staff of coaches, therapists, doctors and managers who are committed to the long-term development and success of our Cadet athletes.”
 
This past summer, the Cadet National Team finished 6th at the 2014 FIBA U17 World Cup in Dubai, led by head coach Dave DeAveiro. In 2015, athletes born in 1999 or later will take part in the U16 FIBA Americas in Bahia Blanca, Argentina from June 10-14.
