In the weekend of March 16 – 18, 2018 Child Focus Foundation organized a teen inter-island basketball competition, with the support of the Public Entity of Saba. The Child Focus team played against a collaborative team of Sint- Maarten National Basketball Association and Island Hoops. A total of three games were played. The first game was won by Sint-Maarten with the score of 34-43. The second game was won by Saba with the score of 59- 52 and the championship game was won by Saba with a score of 53-47.
The interactive sport weekend gave the teens the opportunity to make new friends, play against other teens and experience the trill of a match. The event ended with a friendly BBQ at Cove Bay on Sunday, where the teens were able to meet up in an relaxed atmosphere.
Child Focus Foundation is looking into organizing more inter-island sport competitions with neighboring islands. Child Focus is of the opinion that these types of events are important for the development of the youth of Saba and would like to ask the support of the community to make events like this, a success.
