A report out of Winnipeg says an elite level basketball team came to Sault Ste. Marie earlier this month.
After a two week training trip to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario a team from the National Preparatory League the Northstar Preparatory Institute returned home to Winnipeg on December 21, 2020.
The program is designed to help elite-talent high school players mostly from the Winnipeg area get exposure to scouts from across North America.
Players parents were told they would all get COVID tests when they arrived in Ontario. They were instructed to deceive health officials here in order to get the tests by saying they had symptoms even if they didn’t.
The province of Manitoba has been in a lockdown situation since November. A previous plan by this organization to go to Calgary for training did not come to fruition.
There may be players with association to this team from Sault Ste. Marie according to the report.
