Saints Basketball 2020
Basketball is a great way to get fit, have fun with friends and learn teamwork along with the skills associated with the sport.
This is made possible by the number of parents who volunteer to help coach teams. Without their commitment, dedication, passion and willingness to do so, we wouldn’t be in the position to successfully run the various sports for our students.
We place an emphasis on physical fitness and sportsmanship and intend the activities to be for enjoyment and healthy competition. The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles:
- caring, and
- good citizenship

The KDBA have indicated that most teams will play on Monday afternoons, apart from the senior boys team, who will play on Wednesday afternoons. Games are held at Ray Owen Sports Centre. The KDBA schedules the fixtures and posts them online. Game times vary from 4:30pm, 5:20pm, 6:10pm and 7:00pm (the younger teams normally play earlier). The GameDay App is recommended for keeping up to date with your child's game times.
Each team will decide when it best suits them to train. Training will either take place at school during the week or at Ray Owen Sports centre before games.
Please refer to your coach for your training time.

Parent help is an essential part of KC Saints Basketball. Our teams are coached and organised with the help of our parents. Please note that we will only be able to put forward teams that have parent coaches available and that have the minimum number of students registered. Parent help for scoring at the games will also be needed.
