UPDATE June 12, 2014

 Under 13 Girls Team 

In their efforts to fund raise for our trip to the Eastern Canadians the girls have been giving back too.

They did a grocery bagging fundraiser at Dominion and 10% of funds raised went to PC Charity.  That totaled $240.

In addition, May 31 they did a bottle drive.  From that the girls donated $100 to the Janeway Foundation. 

Watch for the girls in "The Pearl" in the next couple of weeks.

Great work!

UPDATED MAY 11/14

Our U13 Boys Club team held a small fundraiser on a Mother's Day gift basket. The draw was today and the winner was Scelina Wilson, ticket #462187.

A reminder to the groups at SPJH on Sundays. Start time for 6-7 Boys group 1 is at 2:30 with group 2 starting at 4 and 8-10 boys beginning at 5:30. Our schedule is not accurate (we are in the process of updating).

Also the last session for our program will be on Sunday, April 13 and not April 6 as originally noted. Where we lost the first Sunday after the Christmas break due to power/heat issues, our make-up session will be on April 13. This is not yet reflected on our schedule. 

We will also be holding our closing pizza banquet at the end of our program. Details to follow.

Hard to play basketball outside in Newfoundland in the winter!


Some of our players in Grades 4, 5 & 6 took part in the second annual NLBA 3 on 3 Jamboree that was held on November 22 at the Power Plex Facility in St. John's. A fun time was had by all as they got to play a friendly game of 3 on 3 basketball with other basketball clubs. Thank you to our volunteer coaches and referees in helping make this another positive experience for the kids.
