St. Comán's Wood String Orchestra Performances in Roscommon Arts Centre, May 2022

An interview with Anna Victoria Silva Assis (age 12), 5th Class (Mr. Hynes)

Anna has been a sports enthusiast from the very young age of six years. She has a busy schedule playing soccer, Gaelic football, tag rugby, volleyball, basketball and swimming.

In her spare time Anna enjoys creative art activities, and actively participates in dance, music and drama. 

Anna plays for Athlone Basketball Club and Academy since the age of eleven taking on the responsibility of point and shooting guard.

The point guard is the "leader" of the team on the court. These positions require Anna to display substantial ball-handling skills and the ability to facilitate the team during a play. The shooting guard, as the name implies, is often the best shooter, as well as being capable of shooting accurately from longer distances.

Anna has recently been appointed captain of the all-Ireland under 14's basketball team.

When asked where does your inspiration come from?

Anna explained that she gets her inspiration from her brothers Pedro and Kaio and her wonderful parents. 

Anna puts her positive playing and recent appointment as captain down to hard work and her eagerness to do better.” 

Anna trains with her club 2/3 nights for 4/5 hours minimum weekly and has a game most weekends. 

When asked what message do you have for your peers and young sports enthusiasts?

“Just focus on your game

Let your game do the talking 

Don’t talk back to the referee – be respectful

If you don’t do well, you will do better the next day

Don’t let it get to you

Go out and play

Never ever doubt yourself, even if you’re the worse person on the team 

Have fun – Love what you do

Never give up"
