WE'RE PLAYIN' BASKETBALL!

Our school started their very first girls basketball team! At first, most of the girls were hesitant to play, but the more they were talked to about it, the more they started to warm up to the idea. They hardly had any practice time (except during P.E.), and they knew the basic fundamentals of the game. Little did they know that after only a few weeks of practice, they were going to play their first game! 

We were all nervous, but excited at the same time! They all played well together (although they lost), but that didn't discourage them. Some of them really caught on to the game, and I know with a few (alot) more practices, they will be a winning team. They already have a great attitude about it (win or lose).

My daughter, Miranda, absolutely LOVES playing now (that's her on the far left). I think with her already being athletic, it has helped her alot. She's an aggressive player, and not afraid to get in the mix!! 

I look forward to seeing this team grow!! I wish I was this athletic at her age!

To play basketball you definitely need to be athletic and aggressive. I just know your daughter will do so good. Any team sport is fun to be a part of.
