Present and former members of the Summerland Secondary School Rockets basketball teams will face each other on the court on Saturday.

The annual Summerland Secondary School Homecoming Tournament will be held on Dec. 21.

A total of five games are scheduled.

The action begins at 10:30 a.m. when the graduates of 2002 and earlier will face the current Rockets senior boys team.

At noon the 2003 to 2009 alumni will compete against the 2010 to 2013 team.

Two girls alumni teams will meet at 1:30 p.m.

The next games are slated for 3 and 4:30 p.m. Teams in those games will be determined by the results of the earlier games.

The tournament has become a Summerland tradition. It is held annually during the festive season and provides a chance for former players to reconnect.

Players will pay to play in the tournament. The cost is $20 for alumni boys players and $10 for alumni girls players.

Proceeds will go to the senior Rockets basketball program.
