Mini Basketball 2019


Mini Basketball


On a very cold, snowy Tuesday afternoon, we took two very excited teams to the mini basketball tournament.


Giraffes – Deniz, Elliot, Luka, Luisa and Jamie.

Sharks – Kayleb, Ryan, Jake, Maisie and Alex.


Basketball is a very fast, furious and sometimes quite violent game!  It took our teams a while to settle into their games.  Deniz had played at his last school and was quite the dribbler!  Elliot and Luka who are both very fast, met their match with the All Saints and Ashbourne players.  Jake was outstanding in all his games! 


Unfortunately, even though both teams had a great deal of the play the ball just would not go in the basket!  Something for Mr Johnson to work on in the future.  As always, our WJS teams played with the ‘Spirit of the Games’ and everyone enjoyed their first basketball tournament.
