Nottingham Academy

Under 13 Boys 2017/18 Review

A review of the Nottingham Academy Under 13 Boys Basketball Team 2017-2018

Under 13 / 14 Boys

The year 7 & 8 Boys have shown some sporadic improvement throughout the year, which is finally starting to gain momentum now the boys are showing some serious commitment.  The boys came second in the Year 8 City Schools competition, a huge improvement after finishing last the previous year.  With a strong core of highly committed year 7’s alongside some potentially talented Year 8’s, the boys should go from strength to strength in the next few years if they continue to be committed.  On a personnel note we’ve seen a huge difference in the attitude of several Year 7 boys since they joined the basketball programme; Ismael, Kian, Cairo, Makki and others are improving their attitude and conduct every day.  Amel Subasic and Mavacala Rodrigues should be recognised for their excellent commitment and leadership; as the only year 9’s able to train after school they rarely miss a session and work well with the younger age groups.
