It was a very busy weekend for the JV and Varsity Basketball teams as they competed in several fixtures in two days. First, on Friday, we welcomed the American School Paris, (ASP) to ISH, who competed on our Silverbacks Day. It was great to see the spectating areas full of Silverbacks support!! It really gave the teams a lift and further demonstrated the togetherness ISH has for its Silverback Teams and School. Both JV and Varsity Teams competed until late on Friday night!
On Saturday, The American School of The Hague joined the party and all teams competed in a three-way competition. The JV teams travelled over to ASH to compete whilst the Varsity Teams competed here at ISH. All teams enjoyed the competition and it was great for the coaches to play everyone and try out different tactics and plays.
A huge thank you to the Silverbacks 'Booster Club' who kept all the spectators going with its drinks and snacks. It really made a difference to the weekend and allowed people to enjoy the event.

A very successful Silverbacks Day took place on Friday 17th January, ran by the Athletics Council. It was a day full of events and activities for students and teachers to get involved in and for the school to show its Silverbacks Spirit. There were fun games on the plaza at break times, music and entertainment and a Team vs Team Dodgeball game at Lunchtime. Congratulations to the Boys Rugby Team who came out winners in this event! All of this was then followed, after school, with the JV and Varsity Basketball Teams taking on the visiting school, American School Paris.
A huge thank you to the Athletics Council, students in Year 13, Tara, Victor, Carlotta, Victor, Phoebe and Cedric, for putting this together. The Silverbacks Spirit is strong!!!
Look out for the next one!!!

This weekend the U12 and U14 Basketball teams hosted Antwerp International School. This was our first time hosting the middle school teams and it was a huge success. The gyms were packed, both Friday and Saturday, and the atmosphere was great. The games were exciting!! This was the first home game of the season for the teams and it was great for them to play several games over the weekend.
Friday night saw the U12 Teams dominate both games. The Girls won 27-10 and the Boys won 42-20. The U14 Teams had a more difficult time but managed to compete against a strong AIS side. The Girls lost 30-36 and the Boys lost 26-43.
Saturday, the teams managed to have a rest and regroup. The games were once again exciting and ISH put on an even stronger display of basketball. Both Girls teams won, U12's 28-10 and the U14's 29-18. The Boys teams also came close to a double win! The U12's continued to dominate, winning 58-27 and the U14's changed their style of play and came close to beating AIS. Unfortunately, they went down 43-45.
Great job all Coaches and Players!
The Booster Club was also rushed off their feet! A huge thank you to all those who helped run the stand and to all those who came out to support the teams.
Look out for the next set of games!!
