This year I went to the try-outs for the 8/9 basketball team. There are two teams, 8/9 A team and the 8/9 B team. I made the 8/9 A team along with my friends, Celina, Alisha, Ingrid, Maggie, Laelia and Linda. We have 3 practices a week. One on monday after school, and two in the morning before school on Wednesday and Friday.
On Monday and Tuesday there was basketball tryouts for the grade 8/9 A and B basketball team. I think I did okay for the basketball tryouts, I can work on many skills to improve before I go on the court and play. I can work on my dribbling skills, being aggressive, getting open, shooting.
This year I have joined the grade 8 bantam girls volleyball team along with many of my friends. We have been practicing 3x a week. Tuesday – 7:00am – 8:45am, Wednesday – 3:30pm – 5:00pm, and Friday – 2:30pm – 3:30pm.
Right now i am still doing dance. I have been doing it since i was about 3/4 so around 10/11 years. It is really fun with trying new moves and trying new tricks. I used to do 6 hours a week with 2 competitive classes. Now i am only doing 2 hours a week, although later on i would really love to get back into the competitive classes and compete again.
Volleyball was also very fun. We also got to play many team except we got to play lots of public school and we played grade 8’s. It was a great challenge for playing games with people who are a year older you and it was even more great when we won lots of them. The volleyball season was amazing.
Basketball is one of my minor commitments. In basketball we have been practicing a whole bunch of stuff. We have been practicing lay ups, screens, rules gameplay, etc. I think the A team is doing very well and we have only lost very little games which is great. I am looking forward for the last few practices and games for the season. Go Titans Go!
