Basketball is offered for both boys and girls to play as part of a team. We focus on developing core skills, tactical knowledge and games sense, alongside positive attitudes which value respect, commitment, determination and team work.
Basketball is one of our six main sports. It is popular amongst students, who enjoy participating and competing at a level suitable to their ability. Although we strive for excellence both in performance and attitude, we cater for all students regardless of their level.
Teams compete at CISSA, SISAC and ACAMIS. Each team will have the opportunity to be involved in pre-season training in preparation for the competitions. The commitment of both students and coaches has seen a huge improvement of the teams over the last few years.
Every coach is a member of staff who will manage each Basketball team. All coaches have a good level of playing and coaching experience, with relevant coaching and umpiring qualifications.
It is our aim to provide every student in Years 6 to 13 with the opportunity to represent the school in Basketball fixtures. For the 1st time we fielded both a Division 1 and 2 team in the SISAC league and we will being doing the same for the CISSA season.
Fixtures are played throughout the second season at the SISAC level and the fourth for CISSA, in a competitive and sporting spirit. Teams play a strong and well established fixture list, which is becoming more competitive as Basketball gains popularity at the school.
We also host and attend regular tournaments which involve a full day’s schedule of competitive games.
Tours provide the opportunity to play high quality opposition as well as experience a different culture.
