Sixty teams duke it out in tournament
By Cst. Ian Macdonald, APD
he Abbotsford Police Department City Basketball Tournament has become one of the most exciting events on the local sports calendar! This immensely popular tournament starts today, and culminates with finals running all day on Saturday, December 15th at the Columbia Bible College.
In this, the tournament’s seventh year,
over 60 teams and 900 athletes will compete in more than 100 games for
city-wide bragging rights! Both boys’ and girls’ teams from grade eight
through senior levels will be participating. We encourage everyone from
the community to come out to support our young athletes – and to enjoy
the competitive spirit of the games!
This event is another opportunity for our
community to come out to support the numerous youth who are making great
choices and playing high caliber basketball. Packing the stands for
these games is a tangible way that parents, grandparents, family,
friends, neighbours and others in the community can demonstrate that our
city, and the youth in it, really matter!
