In basketball, two teams of five players try to score points by "shooting" a ball through the top of a basketball hoop while following a set of rules. Pupils will learn the basic skills in basketball like different ways of passing the ball, dribbling and shooting. Beside these skills we also inculcate values such as integrity, respect, determination and teamwork. These are achieved through trainings and participation in competitions. Players who excel in basketball will also be selected to represent the school in the Zonal Tournaments, which are held every year, as well as play friendly matches with other primary schools to foster new friendships. They are taught basic offence and defence tactics by the teacher in charge. More importantly basketball is a fun and healthy activity.
