The Eleutheramania coaches Nick Lewis, Domonique Fernander and Andrew Johnson were truly incredible and versatile in their 3×3 drill delivery and tournament refereeing. These 3 wise men were the inspiring heartbeat of the whole Eleutheramania experience for all the young boys, girls, young men and women who made the effort to be involved.
The camps, transport and accomodation were kindly sponsored by Colman Design and financially Powered by Aliv and generously supported by the sponsors below.
Every young person who participated in the camps were all given reversible jerseys sponsored by Beyond Retro and 80 Spalding Basketballs were given by the Pruitt, Gorman and Kinnett families who also organised MVP prizes of official lndiana Pacers game balls and jerseys.
The campers all received silver medals and certificates of participation and gold medals were given to the Tournament team winners from all age groups.
A huge collective thank you is sent to all our amazing sponsors from myself, the coaches and the campers.
The visiting mens 3×3 team from Toronto consisted of Marlon, Warren and Ryan and they played a tough couple of 3×3 exhibition tournament games with local mens teams on the Saturday evening in Harbour Island. The result was one game to Toronto and one game to Harbour lsland. A fitting end to a very busy 2 days of basketball from one end of Eleuthera to the other.
Next year in late May or early June, Eleutheramania will be returning to the centre of Governors Harbour for the Saturday Under 18s camp and tournaments and we will plan to bus in young ballers from the South and the North for the day. The Sunday evening lnternational FIBA registered mens and womens 3×3 tournaments will be held again at Harbour lsland and we will welcome teams from abroad to attend.
Thank you Tiny for welcoming us to your court at Harbour Island and thanks to Dougie Douglas for the court at Wemyss Bight.
