Basketball is offered for both boys and girls to play as part of a team. We focus on developing the core skills, tactical knowledge and game sense, alongside positive attitudes which value respect, commitment, determination and team work. Basketball is one of our six main sports on offer and is popular amongst students who enjoy participating and competing at a level suitable to their ability.
The school basketball teams compete in CISSA, FOBISIA, SISAC and ACAMIS. Each team will have the opportunity to be involved in pre-season training in preparation for the competition. The commitment of the students has seen a huge improvement of the teams over the last few years. It is our aim to provide the students in Years 6 to 13 with the opportunity to represent the school in basketball. We field boys and girls teams both in Division 1 and Division 2 in the SISAC league and we will be fielding CI, C2 and Junior teams for the CISSA season.
The basketball school team fixtures are played from November – January for the SISAC level and from April to May for the CISSA league. 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.
