Supporting Virginia’s Sheriffs & Deputies

Deputies from the Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office and the Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office in addition to a counselor from Virginia Beach Public Schools’ Substance Abuse Intervention Program (SAIP) will take on cadets from the Commonwealth ChalleNGe Youth Academy in basketball on Thursday, January 19, from 6-8 p.m. at Enoch Baptist Church, 5641 Herbert Moore Road, Virginia Beach. This is the third time the VBSO and other first responders have taken on the academy cadets. Law enforcement came out on top of the first basketball match in July of 2022, while cadets beat law enforcement during a football game in August of 2022. Who will come out on top Thursday?


Anyone who would like to come out and capture Thursday’s “grudge match”, of sorts, email Toni Guagenti at [email protected] or call 757-373-5012.
