Over the last two and a half months, a team of grade 7-13 girls has been taking part in weekly basketball training sessions in preparation for the season’s final game, a friendly game against the NMS boy’s team, which took place on February 15, 2017. We played two short games, one of which we won, had a lot of fun and got to see how much we have progressed. The training as well as the game were a project organized by me as part of the IB CAS program. My goal with this project was to get more girls to play basketball, which is a very male-dominated sport. While there was no girl’s basketball team at our school prior to this project, there is definitely plenty of demand.

The project was a great experience, and I want to thank everyone who was involved in it. Everyone has shown great progress and not only improved their skills, but also grew together as a team. I would also like to encourage anyone interested, to continue this project next year, because it would be great to see the team grow and possibly participate in more games.
