Introducing the 2022 V.I. Jaguars Small Fry Basketball Team

Spring 2022 - ​​The Small Fry Puerto Rico Basketball Association made the difficult decision to cancel the 2022 Puerto Rico Small Fry Invitational Tournament. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Puerto Rico, as of this writing, is still under severe COVID-19 restrictions that would have made having the tournament impossible.  Caribbean Rose agrees with their decision. The health and safety of its players will always come first.

Fall 2021 - ​​The Small Fry Basketball Association has set a tentative date for the 2022 Small Fry Basketball International Tournament. The 2022 Small Fry Basketball International Tournament will be held tentatively on April 11 - 14, 2022 at Disney's Wide World of Sports Center in Orlando, Florida. Small Fry International currently has dozens of Small Fry Basketball Teams throughout the United States, Caribbean, & Latin America. All 50 states and territories. If the V.I. Jaguars Basketball Team is unable to attend the tournament we will announce it on this website and on all Social Media platforms.

Fall 2021 - ​​NBE, in conjunction with Caribbean Rose would like to let the community know that there may not be a 2022 Small Fry Basketball season. The world is still being affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. It would be irresponsible for our organization to hold tryouts and practices during this time. If anything changes we will let the community know. Even if the team wanted to hold practices and travel to compete with other teams restrictions imposed by the local government make this impossible to do at this time. The Small Fry Basketball Association currently has dozens of Small Fry Basketball Teams throughout the United States, Caribbean, & Latin America currently being affected by this pandemic.
