The games are due next week in the Moroccan city of Agadir. The winners of the boy’s USSA and FEASSSA basketball 3×3 qualified for Morocco as regional winners.
They will only be joined by Kenya’s Cheptil Secondary school and Kwanthanze Secondary School. These both won the boy’s and girls volleyball accolades respectively hence qualifying in that sport for Morocco.
St Mary’s Kitende won the category of girl’s basketball 3×3 and would have been the other Ugandan representatives in Morocco. However, the school administration chose to opt-out of the competition.
The trip to Morocco will definitely be a financially demanding one especially since the government did not intervene in any way. However, Fred Kwizera, the sports teacher at Buddo SS said the school has sacrificed to finance the four young athletes.
The athletes going are Herbert Lumansi, Aaron Kuteesa, Elly Mutabingwa and Ethan Siima.
“It has not been a simple one to come by but the school has sacrificed all it could to make sure that these young athletes go and test the international competition,” Kwizera said.
The competition is set to run from November 9th to 13th 2022. It will have champion school teams from East Africa, South Africa, West Africa and North Africa.
The games to play will include Football, basketball 3×3 and volleyball.
Youssefu Belqasmi, the FASS president has lauded the successes and milestones made since the establishment of the competition in 2018. Only U17 athletes will be able to participate in the competition.
