Dominica to host the Windward Islands Basketball Tournament, later this year
President of the Dominica Amateur Basketball Association (DABA) Mr. Dave Baron disclosed that Dominica has been selected to host the Windward Islands Basketball Tournament, which is expected to feature two invitational teams from the neighboring French territories of Guadeloupe and Martinique.
In order to facilitate Dominica’s participation in the tournament, he says a national team will be selected at some point during the season as they don’t anticipate the completion of the league before the tournament.
According to him, while there are numerous talented players, they must be disciplined and dedicated in order to be considered for selection.
He says the association is also hoping to continue its developmental programmes throughout the year and is hoping to introduce a Mini Basketball Programme, geared at introducing the young children both boys and girls to the sport.
also disclosed that a women’s programme has already started under the stewardship of Mr. Garth Joseph.
He says it is their intention to continue their efforts to promote and develop their women players.
