Introduction to the LBA Primary School Competitions

The London Basketball Association is thrilled to announce the start of the inauguration season of the “LBA Primary School Basketball Competitions”. London’s only primary school league all schools can enter and grasp this experience. This platform will allow many young people from schools years 5&6 (but not limited to), to take part in the game of basketball, learning skills, build character and to be inspired by the sport, so they can play for a lifetime!

As usual, the LBA will organize referees, coaches and be the hub to stay in the know. Teams will have a chance host, to travel to their opponents or both teams travel to a neutral venue to compete in a fun safe environment. The LBA will also be taking photographs, all of which can be found on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages, as well as the LBA website. It’s a great opportunity for everyone, as both boys and girls get to be active in the sport and develop a passion for the game. We have a great event template with professional coaches who are all DBS checked & positive role models for the young people.

From the great success we’ve already had in our school competitions you can rest assured that young people participating in the LBA competitions will have the experience of a lifetime, so drop what you’re doing and get your school to register interest or sign up today!
