The Third Annual @NorthPoleHoops Platform is right around the corner.
The nation’s top prospects will meet in Toronto at the Mattamy Athletic Centre to form two playing fields – the underclassmen (2016) and upperclassmen (2014, 2015) games.
Depth in the Canadian class of 2016 will be on full display as the game will feature many cadet national team players, mixed in with prospects that we have tracked throughout the year–all deserving of a spot, as you will see.
The upperclassmen game brings in a combination of proven players at high levels, with under the radar prospects that we have identified who have not had an opportunity to perform on a big stage.
Below you will find both rosters, and they will be followed wit match ups and previews this week! Names will be made, no doubt about that. For many prospects, it would be their first time competing in an environment with such depth in talent.
As a result, this experience will be a key piece for their psychological development. If they ‘show out’, The Platform will serve as a major confidence boost. On the flip side, if the prospect struggles, it will serve as a wake up call.
Regardless, December 26 will be the ultimate measuring stick for some of the country’s top talent. The in-season chatter that goes on throughout the year is put to rest, at least momentarily.
