Although we strive to win every game, we also understand the importance of having fun.

Basketball

The Joyce Kilmer Girls' Basketball team is a collection of talented, athletic, smart girls who thrive on competition, improvement and good sportsmanship. We love to play, and enjoy running sprints and doing up-downs and push-ups in practice! It's a lot of hard work, but it all pays off on the court and in life, as we are stronger people for the efforts we put forth at practice. We play to win every game, but never lose sight of the fact that lessons can be learned from a tough loss. We win more than we lose, and smile a lot more than we frown because girls' basketball at Joyce Kilmer is just plain fun. We practice several times a week with games both at home and at neighboring schools.
