First Mini 3x3 in Wicklow a big success
April 15, 2019
Over 50 Primary School pupil attended Wicklow’s first Mini 3x3 Tournament at the Shoreline Leisure Complex on April 10th.
The event was organised by the Wicklow Sports Partnership and was supported by the Dublin Primary Schools Mini-Basketball Board as an outreach programme. The event was facilitated on the day by Head of Development at Basketball Ireland, Jason Killeen and Templeogue and interrnational basketball player, Lorcan Murphy and great fun was had by all on the day.
Mini 3x3 is one of the best ways for introducing and developing children in Mini-Basketball. There are six players on each team and all children get the opportunity to play, referee and table officiate in rotation. The concept is particularly suitable for enabling children to understand games in accordance with the PE Curriculum. A copy of the Mini 3x3 brochure and a teaching video are available on www.primaryschoolsminibasketballireland.com
The West Wicklow Basketball Mini 3x3 takes place on Wednesday, May 22nd at Scoil Chonglais in Baltinglass. Application forms for this event are available from Denise O’Shea DOShea@wicklowcoco.ie
