To satisfy this appetite the SKABA President has already announced that two leagues catered to youth ballers will be launched in November with the U20 Junior and High Schools Basketball League’s. In addition to the youth league’s SKABA President Romel Tobias has also announced that the Dominica National team will be touring St. Kitts in mid November.

Tobias revealed that the Dominicans will be visiting St. Kitts on November 11th to 14th where they will be engaged in a series of match-ups against local teams including a SKABA Select Team.

The Dominica team will first play the “A” Division Champions Exodus on their home court in Challengers on Friday November 11th. The visitors will then play National Champions Ghaut Bucs on Saturday 12th and the SKABA Select Team on Sunday 13th. The latter games will be held in Basketball City.

“The SKABA Select team players and Coach will be announced over the next week and will begin practice by the first week in November,” said SKABA President Tobias.

The SKABA Select team is expected to feature the top players from the past season and will no doubt be an indication of a St. Kitts-Nevis National team.

Although no Coach has been announced for the SKABA Select Team it is being widely speculated that Dave Sutton, Coach of the recently crowned Champions Ghaut Bucs , will be given the nod to lead the select team against the Dominican nationals.
