All sessions are delivered in a way that ensures that all children enjoy high activity sessions and that the drills are flexible and catered for different standards of play. Closed drills i.e. technical work is only used if certain players need extra attention to get them up to the standard of the rest of the group.

As well as immersion into this fast paced sport, students will have the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the English Language. The basketball briefings and coaching are conducted in English and the students enjoy the benefits of 15 hours of classroom English lessons per week.
