The Jamaica National Women Basketball Team needs your help getting to the Olympic qualifier - FIBA Americas Championship in Mexico!!
The women of the Jamaica National Basketball Team will participate in the 2013 International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Tournament of the Americas to be held from September 19 to 28 in Xalapa, Mexico. The tournament is a pre-qualifier for the 2016 Olympics to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The winner automatically qualifies for the Olympics, while second through fourth place will move on to the FIBA World Championship slated for September 27 to October 5, 2014 in Turkey, their final chance to earn an Olympic berth.
Path of Team Jamaica to the 2016 Olympics
Ranked thirty sixth worldwide by FIBA, Team Jamaica Women is the only English speaking Caribbean team ever to qualify for the FIBA Americas Tournament. Medal hopes are high, especially with defending Olympic champions USA having already qualified for the Brazil Games.
Team Jamaica, however, continues to struggle due mainly to a lack of public awareness, support, and financial constraints. Resources required to ensure their participation at a high level has not been forthcoming, and the team now faces the dilemma of losing the chance to participate in the tournament. They remain committed, though unable to meet the financial demands of such an elite tournament.
Time is of the essence! Team Jamaica needs your help, and fast given the close proximity of the event.
We thank you for your time and consideration. Please contact us at (732) 801- 9441 should you have additional questions.
Kindest regards,
Team Jamaica Basketball Inc.
