Mini Basketball Summer Courses

Mini Basketball Summer Courses

  • Jul 14,2016
Almost 60 Primary School Teachers attended Summer courses on teaching Mini Basketball in the Primary School during the first week in July.  The courses took place in Dublin, Cork and Tullamore and proved very enjoyable and educational for the teachers. The course provides a basis for teachers to use mini basketball as part of their PE lesson and as an extra curricular sport.  Hopes are high that courses such as this will increase the numbers of children having an opportunity to try out basketball.

The Primary Schools Mini Basketball National Committee hope to continue these courses as annual events in future and would also hope to run similar 5 day courses in various other locations throughout the country over the next few summers.

Richie O Mahoney of the PSMNC was fulsome in his praise of the Basketball Ireland Coaching Committee tutors who delivers the courses saying " Our Basketball community is extremely fortunate to have such highly capable and dedicated tutors involved in the teaching of Basketball. Their ability to adapt the modules to all of the Primary School classes and also after school basketball sessions was hugely beneficial. We look forward to a roll out of similar programmes in future" The tutors involved were Francis O Sullivan, Martin McGettrick and Vincent O Keeffe.
