Four the forth consecutive year the Toronto Raptors are holding training camp in British Columbia. The camp will be held in Victoria from Tuesday, September 26th until Friday September 29th. On The Tuesday the team will have a scrimmage open to the public but all other sessions will be close to the community.
“It’s an honour to visit a different part of Canada and prepare for our season in the first-class facilities at the University of Victoria,” said Coach Dwayne Casey. “We are extremely proud being Canada’s only NBA franchise. Our players and staff feel enthusiasm for basketball in every city we have visited. We don’t ever want to take that for granted.”
This will be the 10th time the Raptors have held a portion of camp outside the province of Ontario. In addition to Victoria, the team has trained in Vancouver (2010, 2014, 2015 and 2016), Halifax (2012 and 2013), Treviso and Rome, Italy and Madrid, Spain as part of NBA Europe Live in 2007, and Buffalo, New York (2000 and 2001).
