Interclass Basketball Competitions 2008

Published Friday, October 17, 2008.

After completing their Aquathlon earlier in the week the students began the second part of their exciting week in PE. The students had been working hard in their games lessons on their basketball and mat ball skills during their 6 week unit. The interclass competition was the culmination of their learning and a chance to show themselves, their teachers and their parents how far they had come.

The first round of the competition got underway with Year 6. The students demonstrated the game play they had been working on in PE lessons such as man-to-man defence and setting posts. The girls’ contest was a very closely contested affair with Muffin putting up some great shots. However there was nothing to separate 6J and 6G so they were both awarded joint 1st place. In the second contest 6H were a well drilled team who went undefeated.The mixed contest showed lovely sportsmanship and team work. 6S’s pink power drove through to the basket to take 1st place in their tournament. The boys again was very close. Each team won a match. With some lovely lay ups and rebounding demonstrated during the tournament.

Our Year 4 tournament took place on Thursday. This is the first time students are encouraged to shoot into the basket and we had some high scoring games – especially 4W mixed team. This was great news for 4W as they were tied for first place with 4H but were awarded outright first based on points scored. All of the other year 4 teams played well and displayed good sportsmanship throughout.

Friday saw the Year 3’s take the court. The year 3’s play a modified form of basketball called mat ball where they attempt to pass the ball down the court to a player standing in a zone on a mat. This scores a point. The students competed with lots of energy and displayed some excellent passing and throwing skills. A special mention to 3M mixed team who not only won but worked very well together as a supportive team.

The Year 5 students were excited by the prospect of their Friday Basketball challenge and so were their teachers. The students displayed good defence demonstrating what they knew about returning to the ‘D’. Eva was a scoring machine for the 5G girls. All the matches in year 5 were very, very close with many draws. The final 1st places were being awarded on goals for and against.

A big thank you to all the Primary PE team for their organising and refereeing, the parents for their enthusiastic support and lastly for the children for their enthusiasm and hard work. Well done all.
