Basketball Plate Competition

Today we held our Basketball Plate Competition at Longfield Academy. We had 12 teams entered with lots of new faces on show which was brilliant to see. We started off with some group games and then went into Tiers which meant teams were then playing similar ability teams. It was great to see the children developing their Basketball Skills throughout the morning and demonstrating self-belief throughout their games.

Today we had a School Games Self-Belief Award which we wanted to give to a School who we felt demonstrated the most self-belief, who had the confidence to succeed and really believed in themselves, we gave this award to Red Hall Primary School as we felt they really did have a ‘Believe to Achieve’ attitude all morning so Well Done Red Hall.

Also a big Well Done to Gurney Pease for finishing in 3rd Place, West Park Academy for finishing in 2nd Place and St Mary’s Cockerton for finishing in 1st Place.

A big thank you goes to Longfield Academy for hosting us and providing Young Leaders and also to Darlington Storm Basketball Club for supporting and refereeing throughout the morning.
