IST Secondary to join the Jr. NBA league in Dar!
IST will be adding a boys and girls U-15 team for the 2018 Dar Jr. NBA league hosted at JMK Park. The Jr. NBA is an outreach program sponsored by the National Basketball Association from the United States, and looks to create additional opportunities for students to take part in the game of basketball around the world. It is a competitive league that will allow our student-athletes to both develop and challenge themselves.
IST will put forth one boys and one girls squad from grades 7 and 8, each with a 15-person roster. Due to the competitive aspect of this program and the limited roster space we are allowed, this will be a selective process. Tryouts will happen during the current basketball ASAs, as will team practices, during April 9-13th. Matches for this league are Saturday mornings down at JMK park, and the school will provide transportation to and from the park from IST Masaki. For IST, league games will happen from April to May and then again when we return in August through November.
We are very excited to announce this new partnership, and great opportunity for our students. For more information, check the Secondary School Daily Bulletin. GO TWIGAS!
