The ASW squads where highly physical and outscored both teams. A great learning experience for the squads to build on.
Last Sunday, over 50 TBS students from Year 5 - Year 13 took part in basketball friendlies against Warsaw Basketball select squads. The atmosphere in the gyms was electric as the teams battled with their opponents, made free throws and won rebounds. The morning was great experience for all squads for many who this was the first experience of game play.
The U14 girls competed against a very strong Warsaw team. The Warsaw Basketball team came out victorious but the game time was vital for the squads development. Revenge was sought and found in the New gym where the boys U14s demonstrated great attitude, commitment and camaraderie to overcome their challenge. A really fantastic result.
In the later starts, the U11 boys were beaten by their opponents but the enjoyment of the students was far more important than the result as this squad starts to build their competitive experience. The final game was the U19 girls, fully recovered from their Friday night fixture with ASW. In was was a high quality affair, the Warsaw basketball select squad had just too much and took a narrow victory. This model of competition really works and provides great opportunities for students to apply their hard work from training in competitive situations. Watch this space for more of the same in the new year!
In what has been a pretty intense 2 weeks for basketball, the U19 boys played in the 2nd round of their district competition on Monday. They came up against high quality opponents and after narrowly losing their first match, they were unable to find a way into their second fixture. The squad shouldn’t be disappointed with their performances in qualifying for the second round being the first TBS boys team to win a fixture in the high school competition. In the girls 2nd round fixtures on Tuesday, the fortunes were very different with the girls showing a performance of real grit and determination to force their way to 2 victories and securing a place in next weeks semi finals. A superb performance but a big challenge awaits next week when their hard work will be really tested! Good luck to the girls next week and our U14 boys and girls squads we get their district tournaments underway this week.
Last Saturday 1st December boys Y5 and Y4 took part in football tournament organised by KS Delta Warszawa.
Whilst our results weren’t all victories (1 win, 2 draws and 1 loss), the team had some really promising moments. All of the U10 TBS boys worked extremely hard, showed persistence and commitment to achieve the best results and enjoyed a great day of football.
