In CCKSS, many basketball enthusiasts select Basketball as their first CCA choice. In Secondary 1 when a new boy first joins the school, he will be put through a selection trial in which his agility, ball-handling skills, team concepts of play, and his talent in speed, strength and size would be observed. The teachers-in-charge, as well as the current team captains, would make the final decision on the selection of participants.
Upon selection into the CCA, our students will be put through a series of physical and fitness training, together with teamwork and basketball concept and drill enhancements. Under a qualified coach, the students will learn and grow individually and as a team. They will be challenged and guided constantly, and the players with the best aptitude and attitude will be selected into the school teams. 12 players aged 14 and below will be selected into the ‘C’ Boys Team, and 12 players aged between 15 and 17 will be selected into the ‘B’ Boys Team.
2015 is a special year as it is the first time in school history that the ‘C’ boys successfully achieved a top 4 position in the West Zone Tournament. This allowed the boys to be eligible for a competition slot in the Nationals Basketball Competition as they are faced with competent opponents from the other zones. Despite not achieving any victories in the National Round, all the ‘C’ boys were proud winners as they have rewritten basketball history in CCKSS. On top of that, 4 of our boys were selected to the Under-14 National Boys and Girls Team trials. The purpose of the trials is to identify players who can represent Singapore in future competitions and championships at the respective age groups.
We look forward to more hard work, commitment, discipline and success in CCKSS Basketball!
