The Story of My Learning Starts Here

Term 2 U19 Basketball B team

To show how my skills in basketball developed through the pre-season basketball last term, I tried out for the school team. I made the B team.

LO2- Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills in the process

I attended every practice on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in order to develop my skills in basketball. I used the skills I developed in games with other schools. Practice was tough, often with a lot of stamina training, but I pushed myself to do everything the coach asked me to do. Unfortunately, we didn’t win in the league, but next year I will improve and play better.

LO5-Demonstrate the skills and recognise the benefits of working collaboratively.

As basketball is a team sport, working with your teammates is very important. On our team, I knew some players but others were strangers. It took time to get used to playing with everyone as a team, but we proved to be most successful when we played together.

Pre-Season Basketball Term 1 CAS Reflection

To improve my skills in basketball so I can play for the school, I joined U19 pre-season basketball. We had practice every Tuesday morning from 6:30 and Thursday afternoon at 6:00. Practice is very tough but it improved my fitness and basketball skills.

LO1-Identify their own strengths​ ​and develop areas for growth​. Students are able to see themselves as individuals with various abilities and skills, of which some are more developed than others.

My main strength is defense. These strengths benefit my team in stopping the other team from scoring. Something I need to improve more on is shooting, especially three point shots. By getting better at shooting I will be able to help my teammates score more. Throughout this season I have improved on my dribbling and driving skills.
