Basketball for Primary Schools

Meath Local Sports Partnership (Meath LSP) have teamed up with Basketball Ireland to  introduce a new Schools Basketball Programme for primary schools.

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.

Basketball Ireland

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
