These schools offer weekly activities that are designed to allow boys and girls to play their favourite sport under the Foundation’s methodology with the tuition of professional coaches who are specifically trained in promoting the educational value of sport. Regardless of their circumstances or abilities, participating children are keen to learn to play values-based basketball through the club of their dreams.
The objectives of the programme are to:
- foster the teaching and learning of basketball, whilst encouraging participants to reflect through educational, fun and heavily practical sessions;
- promote the development of children and young people to improve their quality of life and the creation of healthy sporting habits; and
- contribute to the development of cognitive, motor and socio-affective skills and abilities, promoting educational values through the practice of basketball, both in training sessions and tournaments.
