The East Zone Basketball Commission continues its pre-tournament preparations
with a meeting of players and officials on Saturday 20th April, 5:00pm at the Larry
Gomes Stadium, Arima.
Representatives from interested teams have been invited to attend this meeting,
where information regarding competition divisions, zonal membership, tournament
registration, current financial standings, and development projects will be released.
Increasing the quantity of officials and the quality of officiating within the Zone is
high on the agenda ahead of the upcoming season, and the Zonal Commission
Executive Committee is actively recruiting individuals interested in advancing their
officiating capacity. With the Zone working to feature tournaments in five divisions
(Men’s First, Men’s Second, Women’s Open, Boys’ U17, and Men’s Masters’
Division), a significant surge in the number of available referees and table officials
is required to accommodate the quantity of games to be played .
Through the coordination of the National Basketball Federation of Trinidad &
Tobago (NBFTT), the facilitation of the Association of Basketball Officials of
Trinidad & Tobago (ABOTT), and the support of the Caribbean Basketball
Confederation (CBC), the training project will be enabled – laying the foundation
for advancement of the trained officials to FIBA level certification.
The general buzz surrounding the start of the 2019 season continues to grow, with
anticipation for the return of competitive basketball heightened by the sustained
absence of Zonal basketball since 2015. Mention of opportunities for national team
selection at various levels has also added to the excitement, with the Zone’s
proposed division providing a platform for players to impress national selectors and
earn a chance to represent Trinidad & Tobago in regional/international competition.
