Basketball

Mission & Vision:

Riverside Basketball started in July 2005 through the persistence and interest of a group of dedicated Upper Secondary boys. With guidance from their coach and teachers, they participated in their first Inter-School tournament (the North Zone Inter-schools Competition). To date, the school is represented in the ‘B’ and ‘C’ Division for both boys and girls.

The basketball training programme is designed to develop a child’s physical, mental, and social well-being, achieving the desired outcome of a holistic education. Trainings focus on physical development as well as values inculcation to prepare students for the challenges in life. In addition, students also participate in friendly matches and other local competitions to represent the school and gain valuable experiences through the competitions.

They played to their best of their abilities and always gave the opponents a run for their money. This team of ladies will continue to strive and to work hard to better themselves.

The boy’s team trains with grit. They fully comprehend that hard work during trainings will translate to results in competitions. Not only that, the value of being consistent is constantly drummed into their psyches. They competed in the zonal ‘B’ and ‘C’ division basketball championships and came away with a few wins under their belt.
