The Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre on the University of Prince Edward Island campus in Charlottetown is set to host Canada's Junior National Wheelchair Basketball Championship from Friday (June 10) to Sunday (June 12).

The competition is due to act as a seeding tournament and test event for next year's Canada Games, also in Prince Edward Island.

"We are excited to have the top junior athletes showcase their talent in Prince Edward Island at the Junior National Championship," said Wendy Gittens, Wheelchair Basketball Canada executive director.

"This tournament, which will be a preview of what’s to come at the 2023 Canada Games, will feature future talent for both our men’s and women’s national teams."

Athletes from all of Canada's provinces and territories except for Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon are due to compete at the event.

New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island will be combined to make a joint team, as will Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

Those two sides have been drawn into pool A with Alberta and Saskatchewan while Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, and Manitoba are in pool B.

A team must have a minimum of seven athletes and one staff to be eligible to register.

The registration rules also state that all teams that have male and female athletes must also have a male and female coach.

The Canadian Centre of Ethics in Sport has the right to perform random doping control tests at any point during the Championships.
