Last year’s PWC Under-15 Boys and Girls Basketball Leagues were packed with excitement.
On Saturday nights the stands were filled at the CIBA court (across from Kirk Supermarket) as eight boys and girls teams battled for basketball supremacy and looked great while doing it.
This year’s PWC Under 15 Boys and Girls Leagues get underway next Saturday 28 March.
Many of last year’s teams will be returning in Assassins, Ballaholics, Monarchs and Comets.
Once again it was all made possible by the generous support of PricewaterhouseCoopers who sponsored the leagues and have boldly announced their continued commitment to youth basketball by agreeing to sponsor the event again this year.
All the action gets in motion next Saturday from 5pm and thus far many players are ecstatic and parents have said they are eager to come out and see their young stars play.
CIBA official and Assistant Director of Sports Collin Anglin said the competition is crucial to local basketball.
‘This tournament is essential to the development of youth basketball. It provides an organized, positive environment in which players of CIBA’s Under 16 program can implement the skills taught to them over the previous months.’
Nick Freeland, Senior Partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers Cayman felt the league was an important tool for the youth.
‘We’re delighted to continue PricewaterhouseCoopers’ support of the under 16 boys and girls basketball league. Supporting youth sports programmes is one of our Community Service Committee’s top priorities.
‘We are extremely encouraged by the excellent participation in this league and the opportunities it affords our youth to excel in this sport.’
League games will be played every Saturday at the CIBA Court on Eastern Avenue. Matches take place at 5pm, 6pm, 7pm, and 8pm.
