The Aspire Programme sessions are an important and fundamental part of the new Basketball England Talent Pathway and the development of potential England & Great Britain team players. The objective is to provide quality coaching for 11 to 15-year olds with the emphasis on teaching the principles of basketball as a game and reinforcing the skills necessary to develop better basketball players.
Each Aspire Programme session will deliver content in line with our new Player Development Framework (PDF) which sets out the fundamental principles of the game at every age and stage and focuses on a ‘Developing Game Awareness’ approach.
Each Aspire session will include (for all players):
On-court sessions – Led by our team of Aspire Programme Coaches covering key areas of development inline with the PDF.
Education sessions – Covering several different topics including, hydration, nutrition, sleep, injury prevention etc.
Following the eight Aspire Sessions, U13 & U15 representative squads will be selected to take part in the Aspire National Tournaments on the 20th/21st (U13) and 27th/28th (U15) of July 2019.
