Allister Nyce tournament will run from Friday night to Sunday

The Haisla Rec Centre will host 11 basketball teams this weekend for the fast-paced Allister Nyce Memorial Basketball Tournament.

Teams of under-17 boys and girls from across the northwest will take part in the two-day tournament which starts with the first game between teams from Mount Elizabeth Middle Secondary School and from Kitamaat Village on Friday, November 8, at 6 p.m. in the rec centre.

Teams Kispiox, Noosik (Greenville), Terrace, Heiltsuk, Gitmidiik and Gitwinsihlkw will also compete in the tournament, which ends with the final on Sunday night.

The tournament is held annually to commemorate Allister Nyce, Haisla Nation Council councillor Keith Nyce’s son, to raise awareness around mental health among the youth and to encourage them to reach out and seek help.
