“We are very excited to be starting our camp.  After four long months since our ID camp, and fourteen months since we qualified for the World Championships, we are eager to get back together again,” said head coach Carly Clarke.

Clarke added, “For these athletes, it will be their first opportunity to experience a World Championship competition.  We are excited to make this first experience one that leads them looking forward and working towards future Canada Basketball opportunities - as well as an understanding of what it takes to follow in the footsteps of their role models who are currently experiencing the Olympics.”
