This is a great development which we hope will get more young girls involved in the game. Each region is staging a 3x3 tournament for U14 girls (school year 9 and younger) as part of a national project with support from FIBA. As we have such a widespread region, we are going for two tournaments.
Whilst we are keen to see girls who are already playing basketball involved, we are particularly targeting teams of beginners, or those in which an existing player introduces friends to the game by forming a team. We hope that this will appeal to girls for whom there is no dedicated team but who play in boys’ or mixed teams. For this reason, we are planning to have two levels of competition: Learners and Improvers.
Even if you do not regularly run basketball or teams for girls, please consider this as there may be a few hidden talents in children or siblings of your members. I would also appreciate it if you could forward to schools in your area who are active in the game.

Following the recent committee meeting we wish to confirm the decision of the committee to support CLIC Sargent as our second charity to benefit from your support and donations throughout the Dexter Dawson Charity Cup Competition.
When cancer strikes young lives, CLIC Sargent limits the damage this causes beyond their health.
This Charity was nominated by Cass Castello and his wife Nicki, who sadly lost their young daughter Lauren to childhood cancer. Cass states this is a local charity that has gone national. CLIC was founded in 1976 (Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood). In 2005 CLIC merged with Sargent Cancer Care for Children.
Through the Charity families are given both emotional and clinical support via the CLIC nursing team and the use of the CLIC Sargent “Homes from Home” located near most of the specialist children’s cancer centres throughout the UK.
Cass states that with the help of the charity and their nurse Jayne, he Lauren and Nicki were able to focus entirely on being together, with the confidence of being utterly supported and cared for. For Lauren, her nurse Jayne enabled her to have as normal a life as possible, which Cass believes is a common desire for children with cancer.
Therefore funds raised through the competition and on finals day activity will be shared between www.cotsfortots.org.uk, Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St. Michael's Hospital, Bristol and www.clicsargent.org.uk
I am sure you will agree two worthwhile centres supporting the most vulnerable and their families.
Once again our thanks for your support.
