Basketball

Nanyang basketball prides itself on the excellence of our craft and we are bold in celebrating family in this team.  Led by our dedicated coach and nurturing teachers who gifted us a safe learning space, we are made passionate basketballers who are constantly growing to be a better player on court, and a better person to our family and community.

We place great importance in our core values and what we stand for as a team – teamwork, respect, perseverance, commitment and embracing and breaking through failures. These values are ingrained in our NYBB ‘DNA’ and with them, we grow not only as athletes but as an individual person.

Challenges and failures are an important part of our journey and our team recognises that. We are devoted to each other’s success and believe that no one should be left behind. We grieve over our failures together but are always quick to spring back up to overcome each of them. With the guidance from our teachers, coach and seniors, we become more confident and ready each time we conquer a setback.

In NYBB, we are given the equal opportunity to perform and showcase our talents. Besides our Annual National School Games, we also participate in external leagues such as the Milo Cup and the Community Basketball League.

Our team is also committed to give back to our community. Each year, we participate in Values In Action programme where we partner with external social services to serve the underprivileged.

Our teachers in charge and coach also place a strong emphasis in our academic progress. Each year, we set goals for our grades and are held accountable to achieving them by our teachers and peers. Group study and consultations are common in the CCA and it has helped us a long way.

Nanyang basketball is not just a CCA, or any team. We are family. Join us as we embark on our journey to greatness. The journey is tough because we grow through the obstacles and challenges. But we are never alone.

HEAR FROM OUR CCA MEMBERS

“I was never a good decision maker but joining nanyang basketball was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Not only have I made good friends, but my experiences and lessons learnt under the guidance of the teachers and coaches have also shaped me into a better person and leader. There is no doubt that training has been tough, but more often than not, it is the toughest times that leaves you with the fondest memories (and hardest muscles)!”

Adeline (Class of 2016)

“Memories and experiences in this CCA have helped me grow as a person. I learnt to embrace failures and recover from it. As a captain, I was also given a chance to lead and understand what it takes to be a good leader that is able to bring everyone together towards a common goal.”

Mindy Peck, Sec 4

“In NYBB, the most important thing I learnt is definitely teamwork. When one person fails, the whole team fails together. Likewise, when we win, the victory belongs to the team. NYBB made me realise that I cannot go far without my teammates, seniors, juniors, teachers, coach and even my family. Everything has to be a combined effort. Especially so when basketball is a team sport, teamwork is even more vital to victory. Putting victory aside, I would say to me it’s actually more of a life lesson that I’m grateful for in NYBB. ‘Teamwork makes dream work’”

Cheryl Lim, Sec 4

“As student-athletes, we recognise that our academics should be weighed equally. After all, this should be our first responsibility and calling as a student before. Our teachers do their best to make sure we are coping well with our studies and on our part, we are encouraged to arrange group study sessions with our teammates to help one another.”

Charlene Toe, Sec 4

“I am a DSA student and did not have a strong academic foundation to start off in sec one. But coping well with studies and cca isn’t impossible, there were always seniors, teachers and batchmates to help me out.”
