TEACHER IN CHARGE: Mrs J Orchard
Basketball is as much a game of explosive power and endurance as it is of skill, agility and speed. Many of the boys choose to play the game in the first and fourth term in order to perfect their hand-eye coordination as well as their fitness. Maritzburg College has maintained an excellent standard of basketball over the past four years, fielding 10 to 12 teams each season. The fact that the Indoor Courts will become a reality from 2013 means that the number of games played each season will increase.
2012 has been very successful due to the fact that most of the student coaches are College Old Boys who ensure that the players in their care uphold the Core values of the school.
