        Summer Jam used to open during the first weekend in July, Summer. The purpose being that players home during the Summer and students at home would get to participate. However, due to lack of good management and an actual committee the one-man show begins in September, after Summer! When school is back in session and the focus should be the new school year. Da make sense? You are to blame for this mess. The players can't even practice during the week because the one-man committee has the rim up. Da make sense? You to blame for this.

    Please do not make basketball a political issue. For decades BVIslanders have loved the game. Attend any of the games that you can and enjoy yourself.
