Over the past 6 weeks Basketball NI have been offering basketball coaching to 3 schools in the Lurgan area and we were delighted to have them join us at South Lakes Leisure Centre on Friday 24th February for a blitz day between the schools.
The schools started with a very fun warm up with coaches Gavin, Rachel and Emily and then got into 3×3 games so they could show off all the new skills they had learnt over the past few weeks.
We would to thank Sport NI for providing funding through their Club Environment Transition Programme in order to provide these sessions.
Thank you to Basketball Ireland and Ulster University for providing coaches for the programme.
Thank you to the Drumgor Primary School, Kings Park Primary School and Tannaghmore PS for taking part in the coaching sessions and attending our blitz day! We hope you all had as much fun as we did.
Thank you to Lurgan Lakers Basketball Club from coming along and we hope to seeing new members in the club very soon.
BNI are currently coaching in other areas across Northern Ireland so keep an eye out to see how their blitz days go.
