David Price Memorial Basketball Tournament
David Price Memorial Basketball Tournament is held in memory of a beloved referee and Special Olympics volunteer.
In October of 2018, the Lord Roberts Community lost a great man. David Price was involved in all aspects of sports and Lord Roberts Community Centre. David was a longtime referee with the Manitoba Basketball Association, volunteered at Rainbow Stage, volunteered at The Meeting Place, and for the Immigrant Centre of Winnipeg just to name a few. He was a member of the KPAC, Winnipeg 1 and MBOA officials associations and worked games from the youth community level up to the MCAC College level and everything in between. He volunteered his time as a coach at a variety of levels and as an official with the Balling for the Cure Basketball Tournament and Special Olympics Manitoba among others. Together with his family and community, we present this tournament in his memory.
