Our Year 5/6 Basketball team has their club on a Wednesday after school. The children absolutely love playing basketball. The enthusiasm and attitude they display is fantastic!
We have had two basketball competitions so far this year. Our children gave their all in all matches. Steven is like a Tasmanian devil on court and is a speedy dribbler. Wesley has shown some delicate shooting whilst Anisa is great at turning defence into attack. We haven’t won many matches but their effort is second to none. Rafael is a pain in the attacker’s sides and cleans up at the back. Inaya has shown great passing skills whilst Rohi’s defence is always on top.
Our basketball team have entered two more competitions since our last. The team have battled well and are becoming more of a team. They are passing more and scoring more baskets.
Monday 17th June
Monday was the big one. The league finals. Broadfield were placed in a tough group and although they didn’t win either of the two games their effort never died. Some of the performances on show were the best we’d seen all year. Steven and Rohi stood out whilst Haris and Max never stopped. Anisa was our sharpshooter on the night. Inaya made some important blocks whilst Henna always chose the correct pass.
Although we didn’t win any games on the night we did win the Fair Play trophy for playing in the right spirit and always trying our best.
We were placed 5th in the overall league and 3rd on the night.
