Local competetion programmes
Basketball Development are aiming to pilot a local competetion opportunities for schools committed to basketball. The vision is to establish local/accessible, fun competetion opportunities for schools who regularly participate in Basketball. Area based competition means transport costs will be minimal with emphasis on fun, friendly competition. Our aim is to create links between the schools. Schools will be encouraged to host mini games in their after school club time where possible.
