GESS Basketball team consists of the ‘B’ and ‘C’ Boys Divisions and we trained together diligently to improve our skills and teamwork. Our CCA training days are scheduled on Tuesdays and Fridays.
The team looks forward to self-actualization growth and set attainable progressive goals. We trained hard to compete and win competitions. Our aims are to attain a position within the top 4 positions in Zonal competitions. However, getting medals and winning is not everything. We also achieve success when we developed our Basketball skills, and learn to enjoy the game better and together as a team.
Discipline, Determination, Commitment, Concentration Confidence, Communication and Contribution
As the ‘B’ Division season is from January to March and the ‘C’ from July to August each year, our training is focused on being match fit and peaking at the right times. As such, ‘B’ Division boys undergo intensive training from September till the end of the year while the ‘C’ Division boys train from May till June. Other times, it is just regular training with drills and the occasional friendly matches. We also have an active Basketball Alumni where the old boys return back to campus and coach the juniors.
Since 2001, we have consistently been placed in the top four of South Zone for either the ‘B’ and/or ‘C’ Division.
Each year, some of our players make it to the Combined Schools Team or National Under-16/18 Youth Squad. Along the way, some of these players also captain the teams.
