Saudi Basketball Girls Compete and Win

The Jeddah Ballers basketball team was led to victory by two GSP coaches in Saudi Arabia last month. For the past year and a half, the nine to eleven-year-old girls have trained with their coaches but were only been able to participate in one competitive game. However, that changed when the Jeddah Ballers competed in their second game and finished victorious.

Their coaches were not only proud of the girls for their win, but also for the way that the Jeddah Ballers treated the other players during and after the game. Mark, one of the proud coaches, spoke about how the girls played terrific “but more than that, they were encouraging and gracious to their opponents after the game was over.” The team is now looking for more competitive matches in order to improve their basketball skills as well as develop positive character traits through the game.
