Sports Ministry

BBC Netball Team

 

The Boulevard netball team started in the mid 1990’s with approximately 15 persons; twelve of whom were either members of the Church or from the Sunday school. Practice sessions were held in the parking lot of the Church due to the lack of an adequate training facility. A multi-purpose court was erected on the property in 2001 to facilitate the Sports Ministry.

There are twenty persons presently on the team and is coached by Mr. Shawn Murdock. The Team is managed by Sis. Stacey-Ann Clayton; assisted by Team Captain Taneisha Edwards and assisted by Co-captain Christine Christie.

The Team entered the Whole Life Ministry Netball Competition annually until the competition became dormant in 2008. The Team joined the Jamaica Netball Association in 2009 and was placed in the ‘C’ league division and was the champions of this league in 2010. They won the Most Disciplined Team, the Best Offensive Team and Taneisha Edwards was named Most Valuable Player. In that same year the Team extended its ministry overseas and traveled to St. Maarten, where they participated in the Summer Netball Competition; in which they were successful. Other achievements to date include:
