Nanyang basketball prides itself based on these values: 

  1. Perseverance
  2. Respect
  3. Embracing mistakes and failures
  4. Team work
  5. Commitment to pursue excellence in becoming the better version of ourselves.

Led by our dedicated coach and nurturing teachers, we aim to be passionate basketballers and hope to constantly grow 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. We aim to grow not only as athletes but as an individual.

Challenges and failures are an important part of our journey and our team recognises that as avenues for learning and growth. We celebrate one another’s success and believe that no one should be left behind. With the guidance from our teachers, coach and seniors, we hope to become more confident and prepared to face challenges along the way.

In NYBB, we are given opportunities 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 teachers in charge and coach also place a strong emphasis on 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 in the sport and in school life. The journey is tough because we grow through the challenges together. We are never alone.


“Joining NYBB has contributed to the immense highs and lows of my secondary school journey, and I am glad to have made good friends and strong bonds within this CCA. Despite the hardships, I am grateful to NYBB for teaching me lessons that will follow me far beyond school life.”

Juliana Hu , Sec 4

“Amidst the change and adversity of secondary school, Nanyang basketball has remained a constant pillar of support. Be it basketball- or academic-related, there will always be someone I can turn to for help, and these challenges have only brought our CCA closer together.  I am incredibly grateful for the life lessons and irreplaceable CCA experience that NYBB has provided me.”

Abigail Ng, Sec 4

“NYBB has taught me many life lessons, to embrace mistakes and persevere through tough times. I came into the CCA scared and unsure of what to expect, but my teammates, coach and teachers have always been there for me. Their constant support has only made it easier to push through difficulties and help me grow. We grow as a team, experience highs and lows as a team, and we win as a team.”

Yuan Yige, Sec 3

“To me, NYBB is family. We find ourselves going through tough times and hardships, yet we never feel alone. Because family is there with you through victory and celebrations, but more importantly, family is there for you during failures and adversity. We never fail to pick each other up and cheer each other on. For the support of my teammates, teachers and coach, I will always be grateful for NYBB.”

Tham Song Yuan, Sec 3

“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 (Class of 2020)

“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 (Class of 2020)

“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.”
