Blast From the Past! Battle of the Generations


(Toronto, Ontario) – Team Inc. Sports & Entertainment (TISE) is hosting the 1st Annual,  "BATTLE OF THE GENERATIONS" at Jarvis C.I. on June 16th, 2012 at 5PM. Over the years Jarvis has had many premiere teams and some of the players to ever come out of Canada pass through to create many memorable tournaments and all-star games. The 2 biggest tournaments that is hosted by Jarvis includes the "Eastern Commerce Holiday Classic," and the "City TV/Jarvis Bulldogs" tournament. Also for many years, this downtown Toronto school has hosted the Toronto South Championship game used for qualifiying into OFSAA which is why hosting this event at Jarvis will create a nostalgic atmosphere for  both the players and the audience.


The event will showcase the passionate basketball talent accumulated over the years by the Eastern Commerce Alumni. Some of the participating players include Tristan Blackwood, Jermaine Anderson, Keaton Cole, Jenea Barrett, Vanessa Kabongo, Lee Anna Osei, and many others. The event will commence with a 3-point and dunk off competition, followed by the women’s alumni game and concluding with the men’s alumni game. We will be honouring the late Justin Sheppard, a former Eastern Commerce basketball player, Bob Nicholson, Eastern’s retired principal who is still very active in the Eastern basketball community, as well as Lou Sialtsis, the founder of Eastern Basketball.


TISE is proud to be running this event as we guarantee that this will be a very entertaining evening for all of our guests.
