Rotary youth caging eyes mid-August opening


Rollers 2's Rainier Deleon Guerrero goes up strong to the basket during their game against Hi-Five in the U19 division of the Rotary caging last season at the Gillette Multipurpose Gymnasium. (Walter Sutherland)  Basketball Association of Northern Mariana Islands is aiming to kick off the 21st Annual Saipan Rotary Club Youth Basketball League mid next month at the Gilbert C.

BANMI is bringing back two age group divisions in the league-the U19 and U15-and is also hoping to have a separate competition for the U10 age group. Games are tentatively scheduled every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for U19 and Saturday morning for U15 and U10.

Other details of the league will be discussed in a meeting tomorrow at 5:30pm at the conference room of the Ada gym. Interested teams are requested to send their representatives to the meeting.
