Coach Jimmy Jumpshot Smith (who has worked with varying year groups across the school to develop basketball) has been appointed to the coaching staff for Great Britain's newest national teams for men and women in the 35+ age group. They are called TEAM GB MAXIBASKETBALL and will be running over weekends through to the European Championships in Spain June 2022.
Over the next weeks and months Coach Smith is looking forward to sharing his experiences with teachers and students in conjunction with his development work in primary schools.
Coach Smith made the following brief statement, "I appreciate this opportunity for which I have prepared my entire life. It not only means a lot to me but also to those who have taught me and I have worked with and for during my career. I owe a great deal of thanks to everyone."
We are very excited by this news and how exciting for our school.
Thank you for being part of our school community, Jimmy. I know the children are inspired by you and love the basketball sessions.
