Exciting news for Ashfield School basketball…following lots of hard work by Mr Goodchild, and lots of enthusiasm from students, we will be participating in the Junior NBA Basketball England 2021-22 season representing the East Midlands in the Year 7/8 Co-Ed League!

Following trials for the teams, over 50 students turned up for the first training session, all with a fantastic attitude and a developing passion for the sport. The teams received their free basketball kit this week (representing one of the 30 American NBA teams) courtesy of the Junior National Basketball Association, and we’re sure you agree that they really do look the part!

Next week signals the start of the season, with the Year 7 team playing in two away fixtures;  Year 8 will play their first games in a few weeks at home.  Good luck to both teams; watch this space for the results!
