This year we have two Lions Basketball teams competing in the Year 5/6 Selwyn Basketball competition which is very exciting. Our teams are coached by Mrs Righton. The players have also had some coaching sessions with members of Canterbury Rams and Canterbury Wildcats.

Our Year 5/6 teams have had a succesful season of improving their skills and learning the game of basketball. Thanks to Mrs Righton for her expert coaching and organisation of the our players. Overall our Blue team finished fifth and the White team finished sixth.
