Total of 12 P.E.I. teams taking part

SUMMERSIDE – It’s a big weekend for midget AA basketball in Summerside.

The 37th annual Summerside Intermediate School (SIS) tip-off tournament will be held on Friday and Saturday.

A total of 12 P.E.I. teams – six girls and six boys – will compete. Games will be played at the SIS and Athena Consolidated School gymnasiums.



Summerside Intermediate, Athena, Kensington, Stonepark, Queen Charlotte and East Wiltshire are the participating girls’ teams.

The boys’ field is comprised of Summerside Intermediate, Athena, M.E. Callaghan, Stonepark, Queen Charlotte and Birchwood.

Play begins on Friday at 3 p.m., with a pair of boys’ games. The M.E. Callaghan Cougars take on Stonepark at Summerside Intermediate, and the Athena Hawks entertain Queen Charlotte.

All games involving the Athena boys and girls’ teams will be played in their home gym.


Round-robin format

The tournament features a round-robin format, and there will be no championship games. All games will feature a west team taking on an east team. The purpose of the tournament is to allow to teams play some early-season games against opponents they normally would not see during regular-season in the P.E.I. School Athletic Association midget AA leagues.

The final round-robin games at both SIS and Athena are scheduled for Saturday at 3 p.m.
