Basketball is an intense team sport created by Canadian Dr. James Naismith almost 130 years ago. Play begins with a round-robin tournament followed by a medal round based upon the final rankings in round-robin play.

Competition in basketball is held in both Junior Boys’ and Junior Girls’ categories. Teams consist of 10 athletes and one coach from each participating contingent.
