KIDS from West Fife schools proved that they are shooting stars after they impressed at a basketball competition.

Active Schools Fife, in conjunction with Dunfermline Reign Basketball Club, welcomed youngsters from five schools from the local area to participate in their Junior NBA (National Basketball Associaton) finals day.

Earlier this year, pupils from around 20 schools took part in the initial hosting of the initiative, at St Columba’s High School, with three teams from two sections qualifying for the finals.

The ideals of the Junior NBA are to teach the fundamentals of the sport through healthy competition, with a focus on developing qualities such as hard work, respect, team work and sportsmanship, whilst giving teams the chance to represent their school under the names of NBA teams.

McLean, St Margaret’s, Townhill, Inzievar and Milesmark - one of the schools were unable to attend - and it was the latter who emerged on top.

Kieran Lynch, an Active Schools Fife co-ordinator, said: “It was our Junior NBA P7 finals day. We had five schools from Dunfermline and West Fife there.

“The top three from Group A and Group B qualified but, unfortunately, one of the teams couldn’t make it because of their sports day.

“There were loads of kids there, kitted out in branded gear, and they represented their school in a positive way.”

Reign offer basketball from under-12s and, for more information, find them on Facebook.
