These sessions are the beginning of your child’s basketball journey within the club and a great way for children to be introduced the wonderful world of Ball Up Basketball.
Sessions last for 1 hour each week and take place in the school hall or gymnasium. We do not run any of our basketball clubs outdoors so there is no need to worry about weather affecting sessions.
Class sizes range on average from around 15 – 25 children per session. (depending on how many children apply to the club).
Attendance is taken at the beginning of each session and children are looked after until the end of the session when they either, head off for the day in the case of our Breakfast Club players or collected after the session by parents, in the case of our Afterschool sessions. (See typical session times).
We aim to provide a minimum of 10 sessions per term (Autumn, Spring, Summer) and in most cases we hope we can fit 11 or even 12 sessions per term.
Our school year ends with our Primary School Area Tournaments in June. These have become a highlight on the Ball Up Calendar in the Summer Term, and a great way to finish off the season!
