The Basketball CCA (PM session) comprises of students between 9 to 12 years old. We focus on skills and fitness development through training and guidance by the coaches. Skills such as footwork for defense, shooting, passing, and dribbling the ball are taught. Students also learn to defend as a team when practicing 3 on 3 basketball games. We inculcate values of sportsmanship, teamwork, and care through our training. There is also an emphasis on character development, aligning them to our school values (love, respect, integrity, perseverance, and responsibility).
The Basketball CCA (AM session) comprises of students between 13 to 18 years old. They did the school proud during the Play Inclusive 2019, where the team won the Silver medal in the Men’s Open team competition. The U15 boys’ team also won a Gold and Bronze medal. It was an intense and exciting competition, especially for the Men’s Open players, who played with 8 other schools, including the Singapore Special Olympics Team. Above all, the entire team showed resilience by not giving up and playing to their best effort. Their hard work earned them the second position, just behind the Singapore Special Olympics Team.
We hope that in 2020, our students get to participate in more competitions, build their characters, and achieve greater success.
