The Basketball Artists School (BAS) in Katutura last week rewarded the junior players for their performances at school. It was the first BAS Awards Ceremony for the new grade 6 learners, who joined the daily BAS after-school programme in January.
The BAS Awards Ceremony was attended by children, parents and coaches. Namibian Basketball Federation (NBF) Acting President Andrew Masongo and NBF Secretary General Nande Kayala both encouraged the children to continue their improvements at school and to work hard in basketball as well.

Basketball Artists School was founded in 2010 and is a collaboration between the NBF and the German non-profit-organization ISIBINDI.
 The children have tutorial time every day, life skills and basketball. The motto is “Education First – Basketball Second”.
