The ABC Border Bowls are games between British Columbia and Alberta, with ALL STAR TEAMS from both provinces that holds camps, involving some of the best talents from all over the province trying out to make the teams.
ABC BOWL Host Chel Sanghera helped create the platform for ABC Border Bowls here in BC. When asked at an annual meeting once, what community football does for exposure, she explained that she was connected with All-Canada Gridiron’s Ron Dias, and as an advocate for players here in BC, she helped tweak the program. Having had the pleasure of meeting some of the Head Coaches of various universities, Chel asked to have confirmations from all schools watching forwarded to her via email or in person. The viewership is tracked by VBN sports, where the numbers are also logged.
During the December games, they had universities fly in from Ontario and spent time speaking to both BC and Alberta Class of 2016 players one on one, along with actual practice sessions.They also watched the games and connected with the players.
As President of the VCFL League, Chel would never invest her time into ABC Border as a volunteer if she did not highly believe in it or saw positive results. She says how much she loves all her players in BC and is thankful for all the support she is getting.
ABC BOWL is not affiliated with any junior team, university, or community team or high school, although they do support all avenues and promote to enjoy the love of the sport.
Hosted and run by All Canada Gridiron with owner Ron Dias as a business venture, he cannot run and scout games, host camps, build relationships with colleges and universities across Canada without charging a fee. Car rentals, hotels, and airplane flights to all the different rural and major cities in Canada are costly and the administration of players across Canada is endless.
All games can be viewed for free online on www.vbnsports.com.
All 197 players from BC will head up to Vernon, BC to compete at the ABC Border bowl on May 28, 2016 to play against the best of Alberta.
Best of luck to the Young Stars and Future Stars, Rising Selects and Rising Stars of Team BC!
