When Dr. James Naismith first hung peach baskets in his Springfield, Massachusetts gym on a cold and rainy New England day, he wouldn’t imagine the worldwide acclaim and impact his game — now a billion dollar international sport — would achieve. Novel ideas such as Naismith’s may someday be born from the fertile imaginations of the FSAPS students that continue to pursue the sport in the Basketball Club.
Students in this club will practice their basketball skills by playing organized games against fellow students while also honing their physical fitness, teamwork, and sportsmanship while building camaraderie among their peers. The club is open to all students looking for a fun, invigorating way to workout their body after a long day of expanding their minds.
Meeting each Wednesday afternoon in the gym, middle school students are invited to join Mr. Kurt and the other middle school players to participate in the fun, fast-paced game of basketball!
