YEAR IN REVIEW
Are you a player, sponsor, volunteer, member or supporter of our community? Then you’ll be happy to hear that 2018-2019 was a year of many achievement for our AGBU Sports program. With so much happening, we wanted to present you some of the highlights of this season :
Participated in a Provincial Tournament #1st time ever!
One of the year’s most exciting activities took place on Saturday April 27, when 2 of our youth teams participated in a large-scale basketball tournament in Ste-Hyacinthe. It was the first time ever we did such a thing and it was an awesome bonding experience for players, parents and coaches alike. Our teams made us proud as they won a couple of their contests!
Organized a Super Saturday Shootout #1st time ever!
On November 24, we organized a full day of exhibition games for 4 of our teams, including all three of our youth groups as well as our Junior Girls team at our own gym. The kids were treated to their first game experience complete with referees, music, scorekeeping and audience.
Recruited a new coach for our Junior Girl's team
Kevork Tcherkezian joined our AGBU coaching family as the new coach of the Junior Girls Team. Our players are lucky to have a knowledgable and experienced instructor leading the way.
Our Junior Men's team joined a league #1st time in 5 years
Since 2017, we’ve been aiming at rebooting our Junior Men’s team. We added a new coach, recruited new players and after a year of practice, our Junior Men’s team took the next step in their development as they joined a competitive league, playing all of their games in our very own AGBU gym.
