Letter From Canada Basketball

The Knights of Columbus Basketball League has been a pillar in the Canadian grassroots basketball community for decades. This prestigious program began 60 years ago and offers a great opportunity for children from Kingston to play basketball “Just for the Fun of It”. It is essential for our country to have programs like the Knights of Columbus Basketball League to teach children what the game can offer them, on and off the court. The Knights of Columbus Basketball League unifies the community and helps create lifelong friendships that go beyond the court. Participants obtain a healthy lifestyle through playing basketball and staying active which is crucial for their wellbeing. With the Knights of Columbus Basketball League effectively developing the game, it will surely continue to benefit Canada’s future in basketball.

Missing Boot

Below is a message posted here a couple of weeks ago from a Biddy Division parent. We are asking all of the other Biddy Division parents to please check their player’s boots to see if they are mismatched. Mrs. Funk will be bringing the boots to the banquet on Sunday in hopes of getting them reunited with their proper owners. Here is her original message:

“Good Evening, my son plays for the Grizzles, at tonight’s game at 7:30 someone took one of his size 9 kodiak snow boot and left one of their size 7 boot!! I will bring the size 7 boot to next weeks game!! Can u please send me a message if your son has this boot! Thanks
