U13s Tournament @ Leeds Beckets University
11am-2pm
Carnegie Sports Centre Arena, LS6 3QS
With the team on a high after the last tournament our lad went into this full of confidence with ideas and plans to beat the opposition. And all credit to them they battled their hearts out but when the players who they are playing against are a good foot taller and have played the game at national level is was never going to be pretty. Saying that our last two game so us putting together more passes, trying to dribble the ball and having a number shots on target.
Well done team back in training next week ready for the next U11s tournament.

U11s Tournament @ Leeds Force Basketball Club
A fantastic final game ended Wakefield Basketball Club U11s first tournament of the year. With a new format and new teams to play Wakefield began well showing the hard work in training was paying off running the overall winner Hatfield Fliers close. Learning a lot their second game finish a lot closer with Leeds Force only winning by a basketball. After the break their third game was another close affair with Bradford Maroons just taking the victory. But the final game showed our player's class with Wakefield dominating the first 10 minutes and only tried legs letting Leeds Force Black back into the game. With seconds to go Wakefield finish their final game strongly winning 11 - 9.

Buttershaw College 08/02/14

Finishing third in the senior competition and fourth in the junior competition was a brilliant start for Wakefield Basketball Club's first outing in the Central Bradford League. Playing seven matches against teams from Bradford, Halifax, Huddersfield and Doncaster both our teams battled hard and learn a lot about competitive basketball. Some great passing, super dribbling and wonderful shooting got us some very pleasing comments from the other coaches for our first time out. 

We have lots of things to work on including making the right pass at the right time, getting away from your marker, shooting practice and everybody growing a good foot. But with three weeks to train we'll work on them.

Training is next Saturday 2.00pm until 3.30pm at Crofton Academy, High Street, Crofton WF4 1NF. Everybody welcome including parents.

Our Third Tournament @ Buttershaw College

With a paintballing party cancelling out half the team a number of under 9 beginners were drafted into strengthen up the team and what a great job they did. With three matches planned our beginners team battle their way to success in their first game with a 18 - 10 win. The next two game proved a little harder. With tired legs and arms our players did their best but found it difficult to contain the two more experienced teams. Lots of positives for the next tournament and everybody finishing the games with a tired smile on their faces.

Meanwhile our more experienced side gained their first tournament win beating all three teams with a little help from Deighton.

Roll on the next tournament at Deighton on Saturday 30th June. If you would like to come and join us training is at Wakefield Academy WF1 4SF, after-school until 4.30 on Fridays. There will be no training on Friday 2nd and 9th June due to the school being closed for half term.
