The Byron Bay Beez hosted round one of the North Coast Shield at home in the Hive at the Cavanbah Centre over last weekend. The U/16s boys and girls divisions competed with 11 teams coming from Grafton, Bellinger, Ballina, Yamba, Lismore, and Murwillumbah.

Supporters were treated to a very high level of basketball skills and sportsmanship, with the local boys game between Beez Red and Beez Black being a highlight on their home court. The Beez Red taking the win.

A huge effort from the NCS committee, parents and helpers to adhere to the NSW Health COVID safety plan ensured the day ran smoothly.

Next Sunday 6 September will see the NCS round two at Lismore with the U/18 girls competing.

Future rounds will be held at Grafton, Yamba and Ballina, culminating in the finals to be held on Sunday 22 November at Ballina.
