The Florida Basketball Association (FBA) has approved plans for an expansion team to call the city of Poinciana their official home for the upcoming 2018 season. The team will call themselves the Poinciana Pride, and will play at the Mary Jane Arrington Gym and Aquatic Center, a newly developed 16,000 square foot venue that boasts a gym, fitness room, an outdoor fitness trail circling a pond, and a multi-use lawn for other sports and outdoor activities. The team's ownership group will include local Osceola County natives Dimas Cintron and Gregory St. Remy, both former professional basketball players with FBA's Florida Flight (Orlando), one of the longest standing active minor league basketball teams in the country. Mark King, the Chief Executive Officer of the FBA and also owner of the Florida Flight (Orlando), will also assist with the launch. FBA Commissioner Greg Kite , a 2-time NBA Champion that spent 5 seasons with the Orlando Magic, heralded Poinciana as the ideal market for minor league basketball. 'Minor league basketball has always done well in cities like Poinciana,' said Kite. 'There's a lot of pride in having a pro team to call your own. Economically, bringing in other professional teams will definitely provide an additional financial boost for the small businesses. From a community standpoint, giving the kids some local professional athletes to look up to will have such a positive impact on the future of the community. We anticipate this team being well received and supported by the entire community.' Cintron, who is a resident of the Poinciana community, is excited to bring a pro team to his hometown. 'It is a pleasure to be a part of the leadership group that is bringing a professional basketball team to my home town of Poinciana,' said Cintron. 'We are going to build something that this city can be proud of. This city loves the game of basketball, and we look forward to using the platform of professional basketball to make a difference in the lives of others, especially the kids.' The team will use a mixture of scouting, recruitment and local tryouts to assemble their inaugural roster. They will begin play in the 2018 FBA season. Opportunities to tryout for the team, an official logo and website will be unveiled and announced in the coming weeks.
