[dropcapcircle]S[/dropcapcircle]ASC has ongoing relationships with Strathcona Community Centre in Vancouver, B.C., near Vancouver’s Chinatown. Historically, SASC teams travel to Vancouver for a two-day basketball jamboree, on President’s Day weekend. Games are played on Saturday and Sunday with a social event for teams and family members on Saturday evening.
This season’s SASC Vancouver Jamboree will be held February 16-17, 2013 in Vancouver BC. Each SASC team will play at least one game each day. Depending on match-ups, your team could play two games each day. Traditionally the first day teams are mixed with half SASC and half Vancouver players to foster friendships and friendly competition. The gym location and schedule will be released at a later time.
