Full field for Chieftains hoops reunion

Basketball players past and present gather in Agassiz this weekend for the AESS Chiefs Alumni Tournament.

There has been a tremendous response to the call out for the first annual Chieftains Alumni Tournament.

Sixty-eight former basketballers at Agassiz elementary-secondary school have already signed up, says current AESS basketball coach Kyle Dickey, representing several generations of Chieftains.

There’s room for more, with a full slate of men’s and women’s games running over two days this weekend.

The cost to participate is $20, with all proceeds going to help support the AESS basketball program.

Dickey is hoping to see the stands filled with spectators, too.

The games start Friday at 5 p.m. in the school gymnasium, running every hour until 8 p.m.

Saturday’s games starts at noon, continuing every hour until the start of the final game at 7 p.m.

Also, Agassiz Eagles alumni have arranged for a game to be played 11 a.m. on Saturday.

Contact Dickey at kdickey@sd78.bc.ca to sign up for either the men’s or women’s games.
