NBSL hosts first-ever basketball festival

13 August 2019 | Sport
The festival, which took place at the Basketball Artists School (BAS), looked at bringing together the basketball community. This includes players of all ages as well as parents. The day’s festivities started off with a Parent-Player Basketball for Life Fun Day. Parents joined in on team-based activities that were set-up to teach inclusion and teamwork. A set of Sport2Life life skills activities started off in the morning and ended with a small tournament at which the parents and players were mixed.

The day continued with a 3X3 tournament for u-15 boys and girls who battled it out for prizes worth N$1 000. Teams from the north also came through to take part in the competition. These players are from the Oshana Basketball School (OBS) and were accompanied by the programme coordinator, Pondo Nailenge.

Nailenge said that this was a great opportunity for the children to not only visit the capital, but moreover, take part in competitive play with the players at the tournament.

“This exposure served them well and it showed the other players that the northern region produces competition-worthy players when it comes to the sport. We hope to take part in more competitions such as this and we are happy that the federation is really working towards its goal of uniting all the various basketball bodies under one footprint,” he said.

A very clear final in the girl’s division was played between Deutsche Höhere Privatschule (DHPS) and the girls from the Basketball Artists School (BAS). Team DHPS proved stronger and took home the N$1 000 voucher by winning the game 12-1. Representing in the finals yet again was BAS and they took on OBS in a game which ended 11-0 for team BAS.

On board to make the event a success was Deutsche Basketball Bund (DBB), Bokomo Namibia, OTB sport, Pako Children’s Magazine and the basketball federation.

The Namibia Basketball School League is an initiative run under the Namibian Basketball Federtion (NBF). The league is run by a group of creative, vibrant and innovative youth. They are the NBSL committee.
