Basketball is a hugely popular sport in our school.
Playing basketball has many benefits:
Teamwork – learning how to work with others towards a common goal is a critical life skill that a team sport such as basketball instils.
Physical fitness – playing basketball on a regular basis improves coordination & speed, as well as improving strength & cardiovascular health. Ball handling & dribbling also improve fine motor skills.
Mental – basketball requires & develops critical thinking & problem analysis skills.
Cost – in general, basketball allows kids to experience the benefits of team sports without incurring the prohibitive costs of sports that require a lot of equipment. A good pair of shoes & a ball & you are good to go!
Fun! Enough said! Time to get out there & play! Please make contact with Ms. O’ Shea if you have an interest in joining the basketball team.
