Basketball is a favorite sport among our athletes. Players take it up at all ages and at all abilities, from young players learning to handle the ball to older, more experienced players who have the moves and know the strategies to play challenging ball.
In addition to team competition, basketball offers individual skills competition, allowing athletes to train and compete in basic basketball skills. Athletes must develop these key skills prior to advancing to team play.
