According to Abaco Church Sports Association President Everette Strachan, the idea for a church league for young people developed out of a Round Robin Basketball Tournament for men that was held in May 2013. Although Pastor Stephen Knowles of Strong Tower Community Church was first appointed vice president because of his great responsibility as the president of the Abaco Christian Council, the role was then shared between Cubell Davis Jr. and Ishmael “Stretch” Morley, who also serves as the public relations officer. Gilbert Davis in charge of the league’s referees, Davis Jr. is also the treasurer, and Karen Rolle is the secretary.
