Year 5 and 6 Hoop Time

Last Friday was the Year 5 and 6 Hoop Time Day at Dandenong Basketball Stadium. Like our juniors, the seniors showed great interest in representing Park Ridge at Hoop Time. We submitted a whopping 16 teams in the event – a fantastic reflection of our students love of sport. It is pleasing to see so many of our kids willing to get out there and give it a go, regardless of whether they play basketball for a team on the weekends or not. It is pleasing to see so many sports games, not just basketball, happening at recess and lunch as I spend my Yard Duty outside. The teams have been training for 5 weeks under the guidance of their nominated Training Captains and Coaches and their basketball skills have improved out of sight.

A lot of work goes into ensuring each team is supervised on the day so I would like to thank the parents who gave up their time to coach and/or score for a team.

Congratulations to our All Star Boys team of Tom S, Dylan N, Harry C, Nathan H, Kalem G, Jared F and Kalani C who made the grand final but unfortunately fell short. They will progress through to the Knox Division Basketball Finals in term 4, Good Luck!

Congratulations also to the Park Ridge Rhinos Future Stars team of Paige C, Claire D, Kodie D, Ryder P, Blake P, Blake J and Teal W who made their grand final and were unlucky not to come away with the win.
