The Guyana Women’s Basketball Association (GWBA) needs funding to send its national junior and senior team to Antigua to compete in the twelfth edition of the Annual Gillian Brazier Basketball Shoot-Out scheduled for March 11-18.
The association responsible for women’s basketball in Guyana had expressed optimism that they will be returning to the tournament this year after missing the last three years. The tournament usually features teams from the Caribbean and the United States.
However, with those goals in mind, the GWBA have made the first play when they contributed apparel to ensure that the local females are prepared. Yesterday, the association made a plea for funding to help both teams compete at the prestigious tournament.
“Our team needs your support to offset the costs associated with travel, uniforms, gear, food, accommodation and airfare. The last time (we competed in the tournament) we were able to defray those expenses through the kind support of many of our supporters,” the GWBA noted through a release. The release said that the association undertook several fund-raising ventures to assist them for their last Antigua tour. The GWBA plan to undertake similar initiatives again, but has already realised that they will need help because of the magnitude of their contingent.
Guyana went to the tournament with a senior team three years ago. This time, a junior team is being added to the tour. The junior composition will comprise players from the Inter-Guiana Games squad that participated in Suriname last year.
“As always, we count on the continued support from the corporate community and look forward to receiving your generous donation to this worthy venture,” the release said. To contribute to the team, Team Manager, Leona Kyte can be contacted on 696 5407 or [email protected]
