Three players of Alice Gombwer Basketball Academy, Harrold Azuka Ekpo, Yusuf Haruna and Mohammed Nasir have been rewarded with brand new pairs of training canvass by the Alice Gombwer Foundation as an encouragement for them for keeping to time.
Making the presentation on behalf of the foundation on Wednesday in Kaduna, a board member, Joseph Paul Gombwer said that the gesture was targeted at building time consciousness in the players.
“We are doing this to build time consciousness in them. We called for a meeting and the three beneficiaries kept to time, while others came late. I informed them that they would be rewarded and that is what we have done today,” he said.
At the same venue, training bibs were also presented to the coach of the team, Usman Aliyu, for onward distribution to all the members of the academy.
The academy which is run by Alice Gombwer Foundation, was established in 2020 and presently boasts 73 players both male and female.
They have participated in several competitions, including their first outting at PG Raters where they finished third.
They also participated at Mango Foundation Competition, where they finished as runners-up.
