Tuesday, April 15, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: This week, the 8th Annual Rose Classic opened at Birds’ Isle.

Every Easter, Belizean-American Cleon Hyde returns home to run a two-week basketball camp for youth between the ages of 8 and 18, promoting youth development and a sense of unity in an often divided city.

A draft of participants was held and teams selected in three categories: 8-12 years, 13-15 years and 15-18 years.

Team uniforms were sponsored by American apparel giant Nike.

Hyde runs a much larger similar camp back in the U.S. and recruits local volunteer athletes, trainers and referees to assist in the two-week program, also sponsored by the Belize City Council.
