Basketball at North Country School is both an organized competitive sport and a casual non-competitive one. On our Quonset basketball court, boys and girls often spend free time shooting baskets or playing pick-up games. Basketball encourages hand-eye coordination, fitness, and teamwork. It also grows confidence and assertiveness in children.
Sufficient interest in basketball allows us to field two teams, grouped by age, each winter. Both teams are coed and play against nearby schools and in local weekend tournaments. The basketball team is open to all students who express interest, and is coached by faculty and staff members.
