Junior NBA Semi Finals - here we come!
Our Year 7 Basketball team have progressed to the semi finals stage of the Jr. NBA League competition!
The Jr. NBA league is an exciting partnership between the National Basketball League (NBA) and Basketball England. It aims to inspire more pupils to participate in and enjoy basketball whilst also promoting the NBA values such as sportsmanship, teamwork, attitude, respect and healthy living. The Jr. NBA League format mirrors the NBA, including a draft, playoffs and replica kits, giving pupils a real NBA experience.
The Year 7 team, representing the Portland Trailblazers, faced The Latymer School who were representing the New Orleans Pelicans. An exciting game saw CCF triumph 40-19, with Pawel the games MVP, scoring 18 points! The team will face Hampstead School (representing Golden State Warriors) in the semi finals, which will take place in the coming weeks, and will hope to progress to the finals held at East London University.
