“It gives the City of Wilmington great pleasure to congratulate the Capano’s Cavaliers on winning the Duffy’s Hope Summer Youth Basketball League Championship. Duffy’s Hope Summer Youth Basketball League provides a safe haven and emphasizes the value of sportsmanship, teamwork and leadership skills. The program uses basketball as a prevention platform to teach young people the importance of healthy lifestyles, literacy, self-esteem, conflict resolution and leadership through weekly mandatory workshops. The hard work, commitment, and teamwork displayed by this team, its managers, and coaches are proof of the dedication they have to the sport. The City of Wilmington is proud to recognize the excellent accomplishments of this great team.”
