February saw the start of the Junior NBA season at Shipston High School. The competition is being run in affiliation with the NBA for 11-13 year olds and sees students across the country competing in county divisions with each school representing one of the 30 NBA teams. Since our training sessions started it has been excellent to see so many students getting involved. Our Year 8s have played against Alcester Academy and St Bede’s in Redditch, both of which were highly competitive games, whilst the Year 7s are about to start their round of fixtures. We are looking forward to seeing them representing Shipston High and “Miami Heat” across the county and beyond.
