The tournament continued with the Secondary Schools in action in the afternoon session. Bishops A, Bishop B and Scarborough Secondary are the teams competing for Girls and Boys titles.

On Friday, the final day of action, play is scheduled to get underway at 1:00pm with the Skills and Development Competition where all players will be placed in random teams and will participate in ball dribbling, drills and juggling skills before participating in matches. The tournament will end with an all-star match from 4:00pm.

This year teams from Trinidad were unable to attend due to difficulty in getting flights to Tobago.
