New development sessions for Primary School Players

From 8 February, our Friday sessions at the Manchester Basketball Centre will change.

The current drop-in league for players at primary school will replaced by a 90-minute development session for Years 1-6.

It will start with some coaching to develop a player’s knowledge and understanding of basketball fundamentals. Then it will move into games, giving players the chance to put their new-found skills into practice.

We’ve decided to make this change in order to enhance the work we do with our younger players and following requests from players and parents for a session such as this.

Paul Cantwell will be overseeing the new development sessions. A former Manchester Magic player who came through the junior ranks here, Paul is a Level 2 coach who has worked with young players in the UK and the USA.

The new sessions will run from 5.30-7pm and cost £4. The drop-in league for Years 7-9 will now run from 7-8pm.
