RWANDA National Team U18 (boys & girls) have resumed intensive preparations at Amahoro Indoor Stadium ahead of the Fiba Africa Zone V U-18 Championships title.
The teams under the tutelage of Cyril Kalima (boys) and Charles Mbazumutima (girls) will represent Rwanda at the regional tournament set to be held in Kampala, Uganda from May 10th to 15th.
Kalima said on Tuesday, “The national teams are up to the task of performing well in the tournament. We have an excellent boy’s team and our target is to forge them into winners ahead of the tournament,”
“We are all focused on winning the Kampala event and be able to qualify for the African main tournaments,” added Kalima.
Winners of the regional tournament will earn automatic qualification to compete at the men’s Afro-basket U-18 tournament in Madagascar while the women junior tournament will be held in Mali later this year.
