The teams were dived into 2 divisions: Division 2 - Grades four and five for boys and girls Division 1 - Grades six and seven for boys and girls We will have a separate trophy four) for each division winner and an annual trophy for the overall winner. The annual trophy is decided based on overall points so each school has a fair chance of winning. The tournament highlight was a fun all star match. The all star team was made of two to three students from each school vs the teachers. In addition to all these, the fire and RCMP community outreach were also field for most of the day so the kids could interact with the RCMP unit. The organizing committee is grateful for the cooperation from the students, the principals and the governing authoritys) like the BCMA, Iqra and Azia boards and our brothers and sisters from the community for their cooperation. The idea is to create a healthy rivalry and competition between our schools plus get our youth more involved into sports.
