Sprite teams up with the Royal Bahamas Police Force for the 9th year


For the ninth year Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC), the local producer of Coca-Cola products, has partnered with the Royal Bahamas Police Force to bring together the nine police districts of New Providence in an annual Sprite Basketball Tournament. Throughout the month of July young men from across the island will work together in teams to win the coveted title of “Sprite Basketball Champions”, while learning new skills in a friendly, safe environment.

“Over the past nine years the Sprite Basketball Tournament has become a highlight of the annual Police Summer camp, with the kids excited to compete and get involved in the tournament. This program not only allows us, as the police body, to pass on valuable team building and basketball skills to young men, but it also helps us to foster relationships with these young men, which is invaluable” says ASP Johnson, of the Royal Bahamas Police Force. “CBC has been such a wonderful partner, working with us every step of the way, and literally none of this would be possible without their continued support.”

“The Sprite Basketball tournament was created by CBC as a way to offer support to the neighborhoods across New Providence that we serve,” Cara Douglas, CBC Marketing Manager explains. “In 2008 each of the individual districts were looking for corporate support for their summer camps, and we saw an opportunity to bring the districts together around a positive event, basketball, and thus the Sprite Basketball Tournament was born.”

CBC rightly believed this would foster a deeper relationship between the young men, their communities, and the police department” continued Douglas. “This tournament is a safe and supportive environment for young men to participate in each summer, and we are so proud to continue to support it with the Royal Bahamas Police Force.”

Participants this year are competing not only for the coveted title of “Sprite Basketball Champions”, but also for 15 spots at the 1st Annual Buddy Hield Basketball Summer Workshop” explained Douglas. “15 players will get a chance to learn from an NBA professional player at the end of the four-week tournament. We are very excited to add this element to our camp, while continuing to support our wider community.”

Each summer for the past nine years CBC has support the tournament by organizing every facet, from ordering uniforms, putting together the end of tournament celebration, giveaways for every participant, prizes, to ensuring that each event kids are fully hydrated with Sprite, Powerade and Dasani.

The 2016 Sprite Basketball Tournament Champions were the Notheastern Division, second place was the Western Division. Mr. Kenneth Johnson was named Most Valuable Player, and Terell Butler walked away with the 2015 Sprite Sportsmanship award.
