The St.Kitts Amateur Basketball Association will this weekend be staging their 2010 season prize-giving ceremony where winners from last season will be awarded their respective trophies, medals and awards . All prizes and awards from the 2010 Championship Trophy to the 2010 season leaders in the various categories including assists, rebounds, blocks, as well as season and playoff MVP trophies and awards will be handed out.

The ceremony will take place at 8:00 pm on Sunday August 14th just prior to the start of the  second game of that evening between the defending Champions Rams Hitters and former Champions the Fig Tree Dirt Revellers.

President Romel Tobias indicated that this season the association will be breaking with a number of traditions in an effort to improve and enhance the league. The SKABA prize-giving usually takes place at the start of the season . But according to Tobias this year the association will be venturing to stage the prize-giving and awards ceremony for the 2011 immediately at the end of the league as part of a closing ceremony.

“We had to push the prize-giving ceremony for last season to Sunday due to some issues that were unresolved from last season. However we have managed to sort those issues out and we will be having our much delayed ceremony on Sunday, said SKABA President Romel Tobias.

“This ceremony will be the first of two we plan to have for this year as we are hoping to break with tradition and have the prize-giving ceremony for the current season at the end of the league this year rather than at the beginning of the next season. This will enable a much smoother transition from season to season and even executive to executive as at the close of each season the season is truly closed and not partially so as the awards still remain outstanding heading into the following season,” Tobias continued

Sunday nights ceremony is expected to be graced by the presence of team sponsors as well as a representative from the Ministry of Sports in Director of Sports Mr. Dave Connor and Minister of Sports Glen “Ghost” Phillip.
