Youngsters storm King’s court this Saturday

After a near three month hiatus, the
WestTel Youth Roller Hockey League springs back into action this Saturday at
King’s Sports Centre. 

The first series of nine regular
season games takes place from 8am-4:30pm.  The full league schedule can be
found online.

Sparking another four brilliant
months of spring sports, the Youth Roller Hockey programme will be the first
formal King’s league to begin in 2010. 

The King’s Sports Centre programmes
are coming off a fantastic Fall finish.  On December 5 Cayman and the

The new live-stream initiative, in
association with sister company Cayman Sports Authority, broadcasted the

hard to follow moves.  It’s going to be fun to see how the kids progress
for the rest of the season.”

Athletic Director, Ray Singh talked
about what 2010 has in store.

“We’re hoping to make 2010 a great
year for our diverse sporting community.  Coming out of February, we have
already opened a four-lane bowling alley, completed the year’s first
learn-to-skate programme and this past weekend we held the second annual Cayman
World Cup of Football tournament.

“We have set the platform for a
