The try-out started at 12pm. I had to rush a bit because I went to a car boot sale during the morning and arrived at my room at 10.30am. However, I managed to arrive there quite early and had a little practice before the try-out started.
Today, the Southampton basketball coach was around to observe and select us. He first asked us to do some layup drills to get us warmed up. Then, he split us into 10 teams to play 5 on 5 half court. The team that score first win and the losing team will be replaced by another team. It was hard since there was not a lot of space to take advantage of. After that we were required to play 5 on 5 full court. It was intense and very tiring since we have to run up and down the court for 5 minutes. I played OK and I was really feeling good about myself.
Then, came the most awaited time. The coach will call out the people who did not make it. Alhamdulillah, I was not one of them. Yahoooooo!!!
Tomorrow we will have practice at 7am. Huhuhu I have to get up early.
The coach will then assess us again during training and will cut 10 more people on Tuesday. That will be the day which will determine whether I am qualified to be a member of the Southampton Basketball team.
Pray for my success please.
