Basketball development

ARCH-rivals Raiwaqa and Suva Basketball Associations have joined hands to help develop the future of basketball in the country.

In a new initiative, the associations have collaborated to host the under-19 competition every Saturday at Raiwaqa's Eds Court.

The competition which will run throughout this month attracted a good number in the opening round on Saturday.

Nine boys and five girls' teams took part with more teams expected to join the competition this weekend.

Raiwaqa Basketball Association president Saula Koroi said they had an impressive start in the opening round of the competition.

"The main aim is to help in build-up for the schools national championship and also help them prepare for the Oceania U19 Championship," Koroi said.

"Raiwaqa and Suva basketball are working together in this initiative to build the next generation of basketballers in Fiji."

Koroi said school teams International Secondary and Latter Day Saints Secondary were impressive last week.

"We will have a final after the round robin games where the top four will fight it out for the top prize money."
