Christchurch Aftershocks Basketball Team at the 2011 Christchurch All-Filipino Cup Basketball League

Well, after two years of absence, I am coming out of basketball retirement and play for my fourth season in the PCSCI Christchurch All-Filipino Cup Basketball League (CAFC). I will be playing for my fourth CAFC team since the league’s inaugural on September 2006.

My new team is a remnant of my old team, the FILSOC Lizards Basketball Team (University of Canterbury Filipino Students Society). The team was literally formed off facebook and text messaging.

The name of the new team is the Christchurch Aftershocks Basketball Team and well, when we formed the team we did not thought of a name until the last minute. The deadline was on December 26, 2010 (the Boxing Day) and well at that time; Christchurch was hit by “aftershocks” (though I thought the first one that day was an earthquake followed by its own aftershocks rather than being a reaction to the big quake last September 2010). So I decided to put “Christchurch Aftershocks” in the registration form.

Anyway, this season will be the 6th Christchurch All Filipino Cup and the team to beat is the two-time defending champion Kiwifino.

  • Kiwifino - back-to-back defending CAFC champions (2009, 2010)
