Inter-High School Basketball & Softball Returns January 2023

The multi-island wide tournaments will conclude in both Grand Turk (Jan 27-28 Softball) and Providenciales (Feb 4 Basketball).

The TCISS Inter-High School Basketball season came to a pause last month but the games are BACK, starting January 10, 2023.

This season, games have been hosted on every island with an active high school participating in the tournament. The TCI Sports Commission has travelled to North Caicos, Grand Turk, South Caicos and Providenciales for an electrifying series of games.

This season will be a series of matches to see, as HJ Robinson fights to retain their Champion title.

The teams were split into two groups A & B and as it currently stands for the top three of each:

  • Group A: HJ Robinson High School, Marjorie Basden High School, Clement Howell High School
  • Group B: British West Indies Collegiate, A. Louise Garland Thomas High School, Alpha Christian Academy 

The remaining schools’ teams will compete in two play-in games to determine who will advance to compete against each group’s top three and eventually the semi-finals on February 4, 2023.

Simultaneously, TCISS Inter-High School Softball will commence on January 10, 2022 taking place in Providenciales. However, the highlight of the competition will be the championship weekend taking place in Grand Turk from January 27-28, 2023. Last year the British West Indies Collegiate came out on top.

Parents and alumni are slated to show out to the games in droves, with tickets on sale at the door for Adults at $8 and Students at $5. One ticket gives access to both the softball and basketball game on the schedule that day.

Follow the Turks and Caicos Islands Sports Commission on Facebook and Instagram for game results and schedule updates.
