There’s a look of determination behind the eyes of every child who came to play this week in the DSN Basketball League. That’s right, the playoffs have begun; and after a long summer of improvement it’s finally time for these kids to show not only what they’ve got, but just how much they’ve learned from their coaches and fellow teammates over the course of this summer.
The regular season contained a phenomenally level playing field, which really proved true as 2-3, 1-4 and even 0-5 teams found ways to pick up wins in the first round! These upsets brought along camaraderie at its finest; when the game was on the line this week, some emotional players were spotted being greeted and cheered on by their opposition once that final buzzer toned, proving that winning isn’t always everything.
The greatest part of this years league though, is not just the level of competition, but the bond that can be seen between the players and young coaches who are giving it their all to lead their team to victory. Timeouts, which began as a sort of disarray, have turned into a well oiled machine as the players have grown to really listen to the feedback our coaches have for them, and in return, see the over joyous look on their coaches faces when they perform the drawn up plays to utter perfection.
There are still a couple games to be played before we see who will reign champions this year; but what we do know is that it won’t be an easy journey for anyone, and we look forward to seeing who takes that final spot in this summers fantastic season!
