MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – The Senior Women’s National Team will be finishing off its preparations for the 2011 FIBA Americas Championship for Women in Neiva, Colombia with a seven-day training camp at the University of Toronto Mississauga campus.

The camp will run from September 10 – September 16 and it includes a mixture of veterans and familiar faces to the senior program. Among this group of players are National Team veterans such as Teresa Gabriele (Mission, B.C.), Chelsea Aubry (Kitchener, Ont.) and Kim Smith (Mission, B.C.). Making returns to the National Team Program include Shona Thorburn (Hamilton, ON) who was last a member of the Senior Women’s National Team in 2003 and Kalisha Keane (Ajax, ON) who last played in 2009 at the World University Games.

The squad have recently played a few exhibition matches overseas in Europe and Asia as part of the first two phases of the team’s preparations for the FIBA Americas Championship. They were able to play in 12 competitive matches where they saw steady improvement along the way.

Following the camp, the team will travel to Puerto Rico to compete in two final tune-up contests against the Puerto Rican national team, an opponent that will also be competing at the 2011 FIBA Americas Championship for Women. The two matches will be held on Septemeber 19 and 20.

Afterwards, the team will head to Colombia and begin competing at the FIBA Americas Championship for Women from September 24 to October 1. The champion of this tournament will automatically qualify for the 2012 Olympics; while those teams finishing second to fourth, will head to the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in June 2012.
