CCOPSA Sports Committee Chairman John Blanco said the game will be played at the home team courts with an exception of Mount Carmel School that was badly hit by Super Typhoon Yutu in October.

The Knights will be utilizing the Koblerville Gymnasium for their home games, Blanco said.

He also said that six teams will be vying for this year’s title in the boys division and three teams in the girls division including that Grace Christian Academy Lady Eagles who have just confirmed their participation.

“Thank you to GCA for confirming that they will be entering a girls’ team this season,” Blanco said.

“Hopefully we can include some non-conference games with some or all of the PSS high schools and maybe even hold an all island championship after our respective CCOPSA championship games,” Blanco said.
