This week were the tryouts for the U-15 girl’s basketball team. Every year, there are a bunch of sports you can try out for and try to get into either the U-15 or U-13 teams. Tryouts were held on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. The reason why the U-15 girls tryouts were this week and not next was because Mrs.Rockey, who is going to be the coach, is going to go on Operation Starship so that is why she need to make up the teams so that there is time for the girls to practice and get better before she leaves. Throughout the couple of months that Basketball is going to be held, there will be games between other schools. Schools that participate are International School Bangkok (ISB), Bangkok Patana School (BPS), New International School Thailand (NIST), Harrow International School (HIS) and Ruamrudee International School (RIS). There are a couple more teams which I’m not sure of, but all the teams are well experienced and up for a challenge. Practice for the teams is always after school to 3:15P.M. During practices, the girls practice doing lay-ups, learning new skills and different plays they can do during the games. At the end of the end of the BISAC Basketball Season, there is a tournament. This year it is going to be held at ISB. There will be different foods and drinks there which you can buy from like Starbucks and Subway. The girls’ tournament lasts for three days. There will be a couple of games each day. Be sure that when the tournament is going on, you come to watch and cheer on the ISB team!
