My DS1 was 170cm and weighed about 70kg when he went for DSA trial in 2019. 170cm at P6 is super tall! Already adult male height! Taller than most boys at his age, but body ...

Re: DSA 2020

Except for shooting, most sports need to start really young to hone the skills so it's not something that you only start planning one or two years out. I have seen short boys been selected to progress to next round of selection. These boys are usually very good ball handlers and are shortlist for p...

Re: DSA 2020

Erm, I did not say national team. I said top national player. At least must have some experience and shown to be top few in a *nation-wide* competition, that is what I meant. I am more likely to agree with floppy. Which is, in specific sports, especially individual sports, all the kids and coaches ...

Re: All About Basketball

I know in my heart I love basketball. I know the basics, dribbling, gameplay, rules, others. But I belong to the unlucky people who lacks height to pursue my passion in playing this ball game. :( You can play Point-Guard and train to throw 3-point goals. Not necessarily tall to play forward, centre...
