Provincial Basketball Tournament in King’s Point | March 16-18 [Updated]

Dust off your pom poms, people! From Thursday March 16 to Saturday March 18, Valmont Academy in King’s Point is playing host to the Girls A Varsity Basketball Provincial Championship tournament. Teams are trekking in through the snow from all over province,  from as far away as the Northern Peninsula and the Burin area.

These are the Provincials, and Valmont is representing this area. Valmont’s team would undoubtedly appreciate all the cheering power that can be brought to them. (Valmont games are in bold, below.) Valmont Academy is located on Main Street in King’s Point. Why not take in a game or two and join the ‘cheer squad’?

Please note that game times have been tentatively scheduled. The ten minute warm-up period begins as soon as the previous two playing teams are off the court. If there is a game you really want to see, you may want to arrive a bit earlier than the time listed, to be sure to catch all the action.
