The Year 5/6 Take Six Basketball City Tournament took place on Friday 13th July at Ellis Guilford School and Sports College. The schools taking part in the round robin event have all received free coaching in school from Nova Basketball Club Coach Austin Grant. Austin also referred the matches offering tips and techniques as he progressed though the games. Two teams were represented from Robin Hood, Henry Whipple and Blue Bell Hill brought one team.
The 3v3 game principles proved an exciting fast paced format enabling players more ball time and a chance to test out their skills and team work.
Robin Hood had some excellent players in their squad and the final medal positions went right down to the final match with Robin Hood A Team coming out on top against their B team who took the silver medals (score 8-4) Blue Bell Hill had some near misses just of the target on a few occasions however they held on to take the bronze medals over the Henry Whipple Teams. An enjoyable afternoon for all!
This format will be played once again next year as it proved to be an improved version of the game for younger players.
