Notice 2 – Term One Newton Basketball Report
Wow! What a start to our Y3&4 Junior basketball team – Newton Clippers!
Our Term One team players were Arlo, Dylan, Aiden, Aurora, Lizu, Berlin, Tom and Carter.
Our Juniors have had a chance to experience sporting highs and lows. Winning 4 from 6 games. Best game result was our last game with Newton Clippers running away for a 22-0 win vs Ponsonby Primary.
But we all know it’s just not about the score. So many more WINS to be proud of, and learning the skills of the game has given courage to all our Juniors to challenge themselves. Whether it was first time catching and passing the ball, dribbling and looking up for a pass, shooting with arms and hands in your face or being assertive to steal the ball off the opponent without feeling mean, these are the WINS that have been rewarding. The future for Newton basketball is looking bright! Keep it up Newton Clippers.
