Basketball is played in both the Autumn and Spring term, enabling students to both play for two terms, or combine a term of basketball with either Rugby (Autumn) or Boys’ Hockey (Spring). We play a number of friendly fixtures against schools in the local area, both home and away in both terms.
Students train throughout the games programme for an hour and a half, twice a week.
- Tuesdays are for a mixture of abilities taking part in a varied range of fitness, skill and technical sessions and set piece work
- Thursdays are team squad based and are game related sessions including inter team training matches and preparation work for fixtures
- Team practice also happens from Monday 4.00-5.00pm each week
- Access to the Performance Programme sessions
Matches take place regularly during the Autumn and Spring terms.
We have had players in the past representing Taunton Tigers, a local team with many different squads at all levels.
