Fewer than six weeks into the year, S2’s Founding Basketball Team has formed! All 14 members of this co-ed team have turned out for every practice and game with the Boys and Girls Club League of the Bronx.

“Being on the basketball team is a big responsibility,” says Coach Davis. The team has had weekly practice since tryouts took place in October, and all 14 of its members have turned out.


“My favorite thing about the basketball team is our sportsmanship and teamwork,” says Joshua, an S2 scholar-athlete. “We really work together.”


His words ring true at practice as each player dribbles, passes, guards, shoots, or defends the court with their teammates. They rotate to observe team plays. Scholar-athletes Juan and Kristalyna high-five at one rotation, seconds later she puts in her mouth guard and is out defending the hoop.


What does Kristalyna like about the basketball team? The answer is so obvious, she laughs at the question. “Everything!” she says through a smile. “Everything,” she repeats. “I have to get to practice!” She runs up the stairs.

As with all things S2, it is important to be on time. “We always have a pre-game warmup that helps us do well,” says Joshua.

How many games have they won? “None,” Joshua shrugs and gives a broad smile. “So far!” His friends in PrimeTime 6 smile back as he cracks up, then sighs with a smile: “It’s been a great experience!” S2 scholar-athlete Daniel agrees: “I’ve never been on a team before and it feels awesome.”

Love the S2 love?
