Half-term basketball fun for local youngsters at Seevic College
Wednesday, 27 February 2013
Primary School students from across Castle Point and Southend enjoyed a day of basketball training at Seevic College during the half-term holiday.
Twenty-five Year 5 and 6 students from local primary schools were invited to enjoy a day of skills and fun, with many playing the game for the first time.
The session was run at our Benfleet Campus on Tuesday 19 February and was led by head basketball coach Stephen Pearl.
Seevic College basketball players Liam Hyland, 17, Graham Oluwadare, 19 and Aeron Roberts, 17, also assisted with the tuition.
David Waite, Faculty Director of Sports and Public Services said: "We were delighted to see so many young players getting the opportunity to make a start at the game. I am particularly pleased that three of our players assisted with the coaching and this is part of the pathway that we look to provide for our own students.”
He added: “We will shortly be making a major announcement in our basketball provision for the next academic year, which will see the College firmly established as the major and only accredited provider of the sport in the county.”
Youngsters attended the session came from Alleyn Court School, Plumberow Primary Academy, Thundersley Primary School, Kents Hill Junior School, Kingston Primary School, Robert Drake Primary School and Canvey Junior School.
