One of the sports we Kings love is playing basketball. We see students of all ages playing basketball before classes, during lunch time, and after dismissal. For our final performance task for Physical Education, we organized a 3×3 Basketball Sports Fest for the grade school student to join. Surely, the students who saw the posters immediately asked their friends to make a team and participate to win it all.
The people responsible for the 3×3 were mostly the basketball varsity students of Grade 11-Egypt. Bjorn and MJ were the referees, Franco and Gianna were the scorers, Denson and I were the timers, and Martin and Rennier were the committees. The planning and schedule making of the Sports Fest took some time because we had to make a decent poster, count the students who’ll be participating, finding the right time for the Grade School to play, and making the rules and regulation to make the competition fair for all. All of us showed collaboration throughout the whole program because we all played a crucial role in it.
5 teams participated in the tournament and showed their talents on the King’s court. The teams were divided by color: green, blue, yellow, red, and white. Most of the students who participated the program were from Grade 6. So we had a total of 10 games before the finals so that each team will get to at least play 2 games. The Sports Fest started 1 pm on March 9, 2017, on the basketball court of SSIS-M.
The games were intense as everyone was hustling for the ball each possession. Many fouls were called by the referees for the contact the teams made with their opponents. Some teams preferred shooting the basketball up close while some teams preferred shooting long bombs from the three point line. Chemistry was shown in each team knowing that each team was a group of close friends who know each other very well.
As teams were eliminated as we reach the finals, the tournament was only left with two teams. The game between red and green team exhibited the talents of the best basketball players in the grade school department. It was a close team between the tournament’s best teams. Green team won against the red team in a close one. Miguel Mercado of the green team was chosen as the MVP for showcasing his skills of an uprising shooter of basketball. The whole program as a whole was a success. Both the players and organizers enjoyed their roles throughout the whole program.
