As you may know, TVT has quite a limited sport selection. We don’t even have a football team and many of the sports teams at TVT are short a few players. Despite this, many of the sports teams at TVT are quite serious about their sport and practice many hours a day. One of these serious teams is the basketball team. See, when I came to TVT I thought, ”Yeah, the education here is probably great, but the sports are probably a joke compared to public school sports”. Little did I imagine that the when I joined the basketball team, I would be sweating my Jewish behind off daily. 

Since early September the team has been grinding at basketball practice almost everyday after school until 5:30. We are so serious about basketball that if you show up to the JCC courts 2 minutes late, you don’t get to practice. If any of you are wondering, yes, I learned that rule the hard way. Also, the team has over 15 different defensive and offensive plays. No wonder we’re 3 and 0 already. 

Here is one example of an offensive play: (see image)

The TVT basketball team is like a family. We fight together. Every guy on the team is responsible for each and every victory we have. Even the bench players. When I joined the basketball team, I expected to be made fun of for being so tall, yet so inexperienced. But the guys on the team have been so nice to me and have helped me improve my skills dramatically. Also, our coach is really great this year. Coach Todd Corman is devoted everyday to help the team reach CIF and get a poster in the TVT gym. He pushes us to give 100% effort on the court and in school. Overall, I have really enjoyed my experience on the basketball team this year and plan to finish off the season strong!

We may be a small school with scattered sports teams, but we are one big family. And in the end, win or lose, we are LIONS!
