Ellie White Shines At Jimmy Jumpshot Basketball Camp


Just before the holidays, Jimmy "jumpshot" Smith, (basketball coach and former Nottinghamshire Sporting Development Officer) asked me if I would like to put forward one of our pupils for a free place, due to a donation from an unnamed sponsor at his February half term basketball camp.

I thought of Ellie White and contacted her parents who quickly replied and excepted the place.

I have just received the following from Jimmy. Go Ellie we are so PROUD of you!!!!  Mrs Shaw


Ellie White Shines At Jimmy Jumpshot Basketball Camp
Ellie White, a four foot something Year 5 at Old Basford School is living proof of the saying, " you don't have to be tall to be good at basketball!" But you do have to be skilled ! Ellie certainly showed everyone at Jimmy Jumpshot's Basketball Camp at Jesse Gray School over February Half-Term that she's got the skills to be successful in this popular team sport.
Ellie was named Most Outstanding Female Player resulting from a sparkling all day performance which saw her win the Free Throw Contest scoring 9 out of 10 free throws and dazzling all comers in the Level 2 Pirates Dribbling Contest which she won as well. Ellie then followed this up by carrying the scoring load for her camp team in the league play-offs.
Camp Director Jimmy "Jumpshot" Smith said, " Ellie has as much talent as I have ever seen and for her age she can focus on what she has to do as well as anyone in her age group.She is just fun to watch and a joy to coach.When we were selecting the awards my assistant coach put her forward for "Most Outstanding" before I could say anything.Based on her performance she deserved the award.She will be a huge asset for any team she plays for and I wish her every success in the future."

Tonight (23.03.17) we had a league match against both Burford Primary and Woods Foundation!

5 of our team made their debut for the school basketball team and they all stepped up to the challenge.

The whole team played with energy, team spirit and passion!

We won our first match against Wood Foundation 8-4, and were so close against Burford but let in a last minute basket so the match finished 6-7.
