INTERREG Basket Academy ft. maisons relais

In April, July and August INTERREG Basket Academy organized a wonderful action with the different "maisons relais" (day care centers) of the City of Dudelange: together with their educators, the children came to the gym to participate in basketball initiation training sessions. Beside basketball specific exercises, we also worked on children's overall coordination and motor skills, and even their ability to relax. The purpose of this action was to motivate children to play sports as early as possible and to make them want to play basketball. In total, more than 250 children between the ages of 4 and 11 years were able to participate in about 20 training sessions, given by coaches from T71 Dudelange and BCCA Neufchateau, and discover basketball. Many thanks to Sarah Back for organizing this great action and to the Sports Department of the City of Dudelange for the valuable support!
