Description: The basketball programme introduces a new 3v3 format. The new 3v3 structure is a 10-minute game played by two teams on a half court with each team made up of three players. This new formation increases speed and agility but requires less stamina allowing for a more inclusive environment.
The proposed School Basketball Programme will consist of:
- Teacher Training
- Basketballs supplied to schools
- Teacher Training Resources
- Basketball Ireland coach to visit school for class training session
- Basketball Blitz for clustered schools to take place in December
Teacher Training: To help minimize disruption to schools, training sessions are clustered and will take place in a local school near you. Basketball Ireland will facilitate the teacher training session and will also visit your school for a student training session.
Suitable for: 4th and 5th class students.
Available to: Available to all primary schools in Meath.
Cost: €25 per school
