Marton Basketball club

We have children attending Basketball club with a wide range of age and skill level. All the pupils taking part have really impressed me especially the younger members who are all able to score baskets. Their ability has improved so much that they have no problem in scoring on the full sized courts which often means they are the first people chosen when teams are selected.
The older members of the group have also really impressed at the club demonstrating fantastic dribbling skills even under pressure meaning we have been able to progress from a 1 v 1  situation to a 5 v 5 full sized game allowing the children to display the skills they have attained and how far they have come.
The effort and teamwork exhibited by each child is fantastic to see, each session is hugely enjoyed by all involved with one child even asking when school was finished as he was desperate to get to Basketball Club.
With the recent improvement and natural ability coupled with a willingness to learn I wouldn’t be surprised if Marton School produces some basketball stars of the future.
