2022 Northern Bear Tournament - Jan 21 & 22

The 18th Annual Northern Bear Basketball Tournament wrapped up Saturday evening after a fantastic weekend of games! Hosted by High Level Public School (games were also held at SNCS), the tournament drew junior teams from La Crete, Hillcrest, Fort Vermilion, High Level, Grimshaw and Peace River.

With the tournament last year having been cancelled due to health restrictions, coaches and players were pumped to be back on the court this year! Teams battled it out on the court with the final medal games delivering an exciting finale to the weekend event.

Fans from near and far cheered on their favorite team from home while watching the games in real time - HLPS livestreamed from YouTube and SNCS games were livestreamed via Facebook. Shout out to Chackie Estacio, HLPS Alumni and former athlete, for his fantastic commentary on the HLPS livestream! 

Congratulations to the Tournament Champions!

The Junior Boys title was won by the La Crete Public School A Team and the Junior Girls title was won by the High Level Public School A Team! All of our players put in a tremendous amount of hard work and are to be commended. Way to hustle teams, we are proud of you!
