Greetings from the MHSAA


On behalf of the Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association, and its member schools, welcome to the 2022 Provincial High School Basketball Championships.

Over 5,000 student athletes participate in high school basketball in Manitoba every year, making it one of our largest sports.  A great deal of hard work has gone into practice, matches and tournaments in preparation for this Championship.  All teams have now focused their attention on this weekend with the goal of becoming Provincial Champions.  We wish you success as you strive to achieve your ultimate goal and hope that the Provincials will be a special memory for you all.

Thank you to the organizing committee for your efforts in hosting this event.  The support of all the student and staff volunteers is very much appreciated and is a very valued component to the overall success of this Championship.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our major corporate partners for their tremendous support – Dairy Farmers of Manitoba, Boston Pizza, Manitoba’s Credit Unions, Payworks, Manitoba Hydro, Luscious Orange, Awards & More and Sport Manitoba. 

Congratulations to all who will be competing for the coveted title of MHSAA Provincial Champions.

Chad Falk
Executive Director
Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association

Welcome to Westpark!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2021-2022 Manitoba High School Athletic Association Provincial AA Varsity Boys Basketball Championship.  We are excited to be your host year.

The staff and all the students in our Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 grades have been eagerly planning and preparing for you to enjoy these next three days of great basketball competition.  I’d like to thank them, and their parents for the ways in which they have adjusted schedules and plans to make this work.  Our school would also like to thank the many people in our community of Westpark School, Prairie Alliance Church as well as our wider community of Portage la Prairie for their contributions to make this a memorable time for each of the students, staff and parents who will be attending these championships.

We wish you all good luck this week! We are looking forward to seeing you all play your best seeking fairplay, and excellent basketball as you compete for this provincial championship.  We wish you good life lessons as you play as a team and support your competitors, great memories as you grow together with your teammates and make friendships with players from other schools, and growth in character as you push through difficult times and celebrate in times of victory.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Staff and Students at Westpark School;

Rules & Regulations


FIBA rules will be in effect unless special playing rules are put forth by the MHSAA. In this case, the MHSAA rules will take precedence.

Junior Varsity Eligibility Rule: in order to qualify for the junior varsity competition athlete must meet the following requirements:
a) Participating athletes must be under the age of 17 as of midnight of the current school year, August 31.
b) Students are eligible to participate in junior varsity for two years. In determining the two-year clause, member schools must count grade 9 as the first year. The athlete's eligibility begins upon enrolment in grade 9 and is allowed two consecutive years of competition from time of enrolment in grade 9

For “A” and “AA” schools students may compete in an unlimited number of matches at the varsity level and still maintain their eligibility to compete in the junior varsity Provincial Championships. Students must compete in a minimum of 6 games at the JV level in order to be eligible to compete in zone and provincial play-offs. Tournaments would count as two (2) games. NOTE: (the intent of this rule is to allow schools to utilize some athletes to form both teams NOT to better one and/or both teams)

For “AAA” and “AAAA” schools students may not compete in more than three matches at the varsity level. (league, exhibition, or tournament - Tournaments count as two matches). Rural “AAA” Junior Varsity teams are allowed to compete against rural varsity “A” and “AA” teams without these matches being counted as varsity level.

The Official Ball is the Wilson Evolution

Teams are to bring their own warm up balls unless otherwise stated by host school.

All Varsity games will be 10 minute quarters, with a 24 second shot clock and 8 second back court.

All Junior Varsity games will be 10 minute quarters, with 30 second shot clock and 10 second back court.

Uniform Rule: Style and colour of uniform must be consistent throughout the team. Compression undergarments can be worn, with no restrictions on colour or length. Athletes, team members and coaches will not be permitted to wear headwear during competition, opening ceremonies, awards ceremonies, banquets and/or luncheons. Inappropriate bench conduct (ie; changing tops, jerseys, uniforms, at the bench or on the playing field) is not acceptable. Any athlete, team member or coach deemed in violation may be subject to a performance bond violation in the amount of $50.00-$200.00 assessed to the school. All uniforms must be numbered 1-99, (whole numbers). (While MHSAA allows numbers 1-99, the MHSAA recommends numbers 1-15. Coaches should be advised that if the uniform rule is not adhered to, the team may not be allowed to compete and may be fined up to $200. The school may also be put on probation (probation being that if the school violates the infraction again, the school may be fined $200 and be suspended from all MHSAA activities).

Advertising on uniforms must adhere to guidelines as outlined on pages 132-133 of the MHSAA Handbook.

Jewelry is not allowed.

Game Limit - The maximum number of matches are 25 per season. Each tournament counts as 2 matches and the 25 match limit does not include league playoffs, zone playoffs, or provincial playoffs. Exceeding the game limit will result in a fine to the school and possible exclusion from the Provincial Championships.

It is expected that all teams attend opening ceremonies and related functions. Non-attendance may result in fines and/or further sanctions against the school.

In each division, the championship team will receive the Championship banner, first place medals and Championship T-shirts. The runner-up team in the championship event will receive a finalist banner and second place medals. The third place team in the championship event will receive third place medals (excluding "AAAA").

Five All-stars and one MVP will be awarded. A Players Choice Award will be selected for Varsity.

At all MHSAA Provincial Championships, interzone and wildcard games, participants must have a teacher from the school division in attendance as a supervisor, or they will not be allowed to compete. In individual sports where it may be unrealistic for one teacher to accompany one student, the zone may designate teacher supervisors for athletes. This must be a written request, signed by each principal involved, and approved by the MHSAA, well in advance. The designated teacher supervisor should have a copy of the letter, with them during the championship. Teachers employed in the school division where they are coaching a team, may be the supervisor for that team. The responsibility rests with the school to ensure that supervisor(s) are fully acquainted with all MHSAA rules, regulations, and consequences. Violation of this rule may result in a fine up to a maximum of $200.

The MHSAA, in cases of severe weather disruptions, may have to make decisions as to the possible rescheduling of Provincial Championships. MHSAA decisions will be
based on Environment Canada weather reports, the Manitoba Highway reports and weather conditions at the host site. Information on possible schedule changes will be posted on the host website between 6:30 and 7:00 am on the day of the Championship. Schools will also be emailed any changes. In case of inclement weather, schools should refrain from travelling to Provincial Championships until they receive notification from the MHSAA Assistant Executive Director with instructions and updated scheduling. Schools deciding to travel prior to receiving notification from MHSAA Assistant Executive Director do so at their own risk and will be responsible for their travel and hotel costs, should the event be postponed or changed.

Many schools travel to Provincial Championships on the day prior to the championship beginning. In cases where most schools are already at the host site, the
convenor along with MHSAA assistant director will try to modify schedules to accommodate teams that will be arriving later due to weather conditions.
