As the association prepares for the encounter, they have recently named the Head Coach who will be charged with the responsibility to have the team in top shape to defend the honour of St. Kitts and Nevis.
The association has also released the names of the selectors who are expected to determine the final line up of players for the upcoming contest.
According to President of SKABA, Romel Tobias, the Head Coach for the SKABA Select will be Dave ‘Doc” Sutton the Coach of the recently crowned SKABA Champions the Ghaut Bucs.
Tobias said that “Doc has had an exceptional year as head coach and has had an equally exceptional career as a former national player and we are of the firm view that both his experiences as a Coach and former National Player will do well for the SKABA Select team against Domnica.”
An association release said that Sutton will have the option of selecting his own coaching staff including, Assistant Coach.
In addition the SKABA Selection Panel will select the team that will face Dominica in November. The panel will also likely form the board of selectors for the upcoming year which will see the St. Kitts National team pursuing participation in a number of regional events including CBC and also the reviving of the LIBA Leeward Islands Basketball Association Tournament which St. Kitts will be seeking to host next year.
The SKABA Board of Selectors is comprised of Dr. Garfeild Alexander, Dave Sutton, Dwayne Sturge, Ian Hanley and Romel Tobias.
The Board is expected to have its first meeting shortly, after which the SKABA Select team will be announced. This select team will not only face Dominica but would more than likely form the basis of the National Team for 2012.
The Dominica Basketball team will be touring St. Kitts in November between the 11th and the 14th. They are scheduled to engage “A” Division Champions Exodus, Premier Division Champs Ghaut Bucs as well as the SKABA Select Team.
