PSSP Primary Basketball Festival

Coombe Dean hosted the PSSP Primary Basketball Festival on Tuesday 5th February, which was supported by Year 9 and 10 Sports Leaders and Plymouth Raiders Basketball club.

Danny Stevens, Plymouth Raiders ‘Head of Academy, Community and Coaching’, spent the first part of the morning working with Barney M, Antony C-M Luke J, Jay H, Billy S and Ellis M, to sharpen up their Refereeing skills.  He was impressed and confident in their ability to officiate the five games that followed.

Teams from Oreston, Pomphlett, Lipson Vale, St Andrews and Marine Academy entered the round robin tournament, in which a good standard of basketball was played.

St Andrews won and Oreston were runners up – with both teams now going through to the final, which is to be held at The Pavillions in a couple of weeks time. 

In addition to the Referees, Jess Y (Year 13 – who is completing a Level 3 award in Sports Leadership), was proficient in managing the clock and score table – producing the final results in super quick time.

Visiting staff all commented on what a great job our Leaders made – well done all!
