Hitting the court
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Basketball NWT is giving the youngest of the bunch a chance to learn about basketball beginning tomorrow.
The Small Ball program kicks off at Range Lake North Gymnasium at noon and will see boys and girls between the ages of five through nine learn about the basics of the sport while having fun at the same time.
The program will run for six weekends and wraps up on May 23.
Kicking into gear
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - It's time for the biggest soccer tournament of the season in the NWT as Diavik Junior Super Soccer kicks off this coming Thursday.
Yellowknife will be fully represented along with teams from Ndilo, Behchoko, Inuvik, Lutsel K'e and Fort McPherson from the NWT. Nunavut's contingent will consist of Iqaluit and Rankin Inlet and for the first time since 2006, a team from Yukon will be playing as Haines Junction will be sending two teams in the Grade 6 and Grade 8 boys divisions.
Play will happen in gymnasiums around the city as well as the Fieldhouse.
The finals for all six divisions will be held on April 26.
On the road again
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Yellowknife's Mike Doyle of NWT Soccer will be in Fort McPherson for a coaching clinic beginning on Friday.
The weekend will deal with Active Start and FUNdamentals, two parts of the community coach stream, and there will be instruction on all aspects of soccer training for players up to 12 years of age as well as talking about physical literacy.
There are no pre-requisites required for taking the course and it's open to anyone in the community who wishes to get in.
The clinic wraps up on Sunday.
Battle of the bucket
IQALUIT - There was plenty happening in Iqaluit with Toonik Tyme and that included some basketball as the 2015 Toonik Tyme Basketball Tournament was held at Inuksuk High School.
A total of seven teams from Iqaluit, Rankin Inlet and Kuujjuaq hit the court beginning on April 9. Each team was guaranteed three games and it all led up to the championship game on April 13.
