This morning we had a change from our normal morning programme and went out onto the basketball court for some lessons from Auckland Basketball Coach Steph. She also coaches the U18 NZ girls development team so we were very lucky to have her sharing her skills with us.

This week we played some games that had us moving across the court and practicing stopping quickly in 'freeze' mode. We also had to practice jump stops in the same game.
After this we worked on our dribbling skills, practicing with both hands and high and low dribbling. We learned that if you take more than two steps with the ball this is called 'travelling' and is not allowed.
Coach Steph also showed us a cool trick called 'going fishing'. We are all really looking forward to what we will learn next Tuesday.
