CWCO Backs Basketball Programmes

FOR the past 18 years young boys and girls between the ages of seven and 17 eagerly anticipate and enjoy the D-Squad Summer Basketball Camp.

Last week, the free camp primarily sponsored by Consolidated Water (Bahamas) Ltd (CWCO), concluded with over 50 registered campers.

The Nassau-based seawater desalination plant and water supplier also made a donation to the C V Bethel Senior High School basketball team. Both the summer camp and basketball team, headed by coach Harcourt McCoy, encourage sportsmanship and character development.

Henderson Cash, general manager of CWCO, commended coach McCoy for his enduring and valuable commitment to youth development.

“Coach McCoy has been a driving force in youth basketball, dedicating his time and expertise to nurturing the athletic talents and character of children and young adults.

“Through his basketball summer camp and wider coaching efforts, he has instilled values that will benefit them throughout their lives.”

Remareo Forbes Jr has been a D-Squad Basketball Summer Camp participant for over three years.

As he enters 12th grade, the aspiring pro basketball player said he learns valuable skills as a camper and C V Bethel Senior High School basketball team member.

“I learned how to layup in this camp, it has been great. Being a participant has improved my skills a lot and taught me multiple skills like shooting, dribbling and dunking.

“This is going to make me great one day as I plan to play basketball for the rest of my life.”
