TORONTO, ONT. (July 1, 2022) – Canada Basketball announced Friday the U17 Men’s National Team roster for the upcoming FIBA U17 Basketball World Cup 2022.

The FIBA U17 Basketball World Cup 2022 will be held July 2-10, 2022 at the Palacio de Deportes Jose Maria Martin Carpena in Malaga, Spain and fans can catch all the action streaming live on FIBA YouTube.

Canada is in Group A and will face New Zealand (July 2, 7:15 AM ET), France (July 3, 9:45 AM ET) and Serbia (July 5, 9:45 AM ET) in the Group Phase.

Head coach Patrick Tatham is back to lead Canada once again alongside assistant coaches Jason Dawkins, Tarry Upshaw and Chris Cheng.

All teams qualify for the Round of 16, where they will cross between Groups A and B and C and D (A1 v B4, A2 v B3, etc.). The winners of the Round of 16 games advance to the quarter-finals, while the losers move on to the classification games for places 9-16.

Prior to departing for Spain, Canada held a selection camp with 20 athletes at Humber College from June 19th-25th.

The FIBA U17 Basketball World Cup 2022 will be the first U17 age-group event since 2018 when Canada finished fourth.  The FIBA U17 Basketball World Cup 2020 was cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
