Basketball

WHEN: Friday (1545-1645) Starting Friday 25th Sept 2015
WHERE: Hall
WHO: All years
COACH: Mr Heath

Basketball is now back in full swing this term and is open to all pupils in the school.  Coach Graham Heath, who works for the Newcastle Eagles Foundation, has years of experience coaching youngsters and adults in the area.  I am delighted to have him back with us again this year helping out.  His son Luc, who is now Y10 at Ponteland High School, has returned also to assist and use his experience to help out our younger students.

Interform competitions run at various points throughout the autumn term. There is also an U13 squad who will play in the U14 Newcastle Schools League this season.

Our Year 5 students also take part in The Eagles Community Foundation Hoops 4 Health Scheme.  This involves an hours basic coaching with one of the foundation coaches and the opportuinty to participate in a regional competion.

Usually around March, we organise a group trip to watch a Newcastle Eagles game.  There may be a chance for some of our pupils to play in a mini on court before the game itself.
