News Update: Capital City Classic

    The Princess Tours Capital City Classic begins Monday at Juneau-Douglas Yadaa.at Kalé gymnasium.

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Don't miss out on the hoops action! Tickets for the Princess Tours Capital City Classic Basketball Tournament, Dec. 27-30, can be purchased online for $7 or $10 at the Juneau-Douglas Yadaa.at Kalé gymnasium door. Once tickets are bought online they will be scanned in and stamped at the gym door. Buy online at the link below:

      Prices for buying tickets at the door are the following: Adults $10, students, seniors and kids are $5. These are new prices for any Juneau School District game that charges a gate and pays at the door. 

      Also, per JSD policy, all fans must be masked at all times while in a JSD building.

      Do not miss out on the action as boys teams from JDHS, Kotzebue, Eagle River and West Anchorage and girls teams from JDHS, Thunder Mountain, Eagle River and Kotzebue will be in action. The JDHS dance team and cheerleaders will perform in the evenings as well.

      "We have three talented teams coming in," JDHS coach Robert Casperson said. "Kotzebue is always a talented and hard working team coming in from western Alaska. Eagle River has a new coach this year and a new approach to the way they are doing things. They have a kid who is close to seven-feet tall on their team and they are doing well in the season already. And then West Anchorage every year is in the hunt with all the athletes that they have and the talent and ability they bring to the table. We are in for a real treat as basketball fans in the capital city for that tournament. And on the girls side it is the same kind of thing. It should be a great week of basketball."

      JDHS girls coach Steve Potter said the Crimson Bears will use the tournament to prepare for conference play.

      “I think the nature of our schedule makes for that ability to keep increasing our intensity,” Potter said. “The games that matter for us start when we play Ketchikan. The Capital City Classic is nice and we will face some really tough opponents and will try to win every game there, but we are all about getting better and getting to the point where we can beat Ketchikan. Because they certainly didn’t get any worse in the off season.”

       On Thursday, Dec. 23, the JDHS boys and girls will play alumni games, the boys at 5:30 p.m. and the girls at 7:15 p.m.
