President of the Dominica Olympic Committee, Felix Wilson, has appealed to players involved in the sport of basketball to stay from drugs because, he says, it is harmful to their health.
Wilson made the plea while delivering some remarks at 2014 Awards Ceremony of the Dominica Amateur Basketball Association which was held recently. He also said that it was unfortunate that Dominica Amateur basketball Association is not affiliated to the international organization.
Featured speaker, former president of the association Val Cuffy, encouraged basketballers to help develop basketball which he said is now at a low ebb.
He also called on former players and the immediate past president to help the new executive and give the new association a chance to do things instead of criticizing.
Without going into detail, Cuffy urged basketball players to vote in the December 8th election “for the basketball.”
Felix Thomas was voted the Most Valuable Player, M.V.P; Gatorade blazers received their award as premier league champions and E.H.Charles Cross Over got the division one league award. Certificates of appreciation were awarded to referees.
