About LBA's Residential Trip

The London Basketball Association would like to invite you to sign up for a LBA’s Residential Trip Adventure, taking place from Friday, 10th June – Sunday, 12th June. This is the first year that the LBA is participating in the program, and we would like you to be a part of it. Our hope is that this becomes a yearly tradition. The group will consist of 26 young people (ages 11-25) and five staff.
The three day trip will feature six instructor-led day time activities and one evening activity. A description of these activities can be found below. If you are interested in attending this event, please read the following information below and fill out the form. Not everyone who fills out the form will be able to attend, and priority goes to those who are travelling to Atlanta with the LBA.
If you are traveling to Atlanta as part of the LBA Select team, we highly recommend that you consider this opportunity.
If you are attending school on Friday 10th June, LBA can supply you a letter which will support you leaving early from school to attend this trip.

Instructor-led Day Time Events

  1. Crate Stack Challenge: In three small teams, each group member will take turns to: ascend a tower of crates, help instructors stack crates, and keep the ropes tight to allow other group members to climb. Once the crates fall, each person will slowly be lowered to the ground by an instructor. This activity helps build relationships through teamwork and support. Helmets and harnesses are required.
  2. Jacob’s Ladder: In groups of three, young people will try to climb a series of beams. The challenge gets harder the higher someone climbs, as each beam gets farther apart from each other. Each team must support each other to achieve success. Safety is an important feature of this task, which is why every participant must wear a helmet and a harness that is connected to a safety rope.
  3. Archery: The group will have the opportunity to shoot full sized bows indoors or outdoors. Through qualified staff, everyone will learn how to safely use a bow and arrow to improve their skills. At the end, there will be a competition to see who is the most accurate!
  4. Pioneering: In this activity, each group is given the task to build the best catapult using only ropes and wooden logs to launch a tennis ball into the woods. Instructors will help teach the students how to tie basic knots and offer other assistance.
  5. High Ropes Course: Young people will have the opportunity to climb different courses with their peers. The courses include the ‘Leap of Faith’ trapeze jump, ‘Giant See-Saw’, and the ‘Pentagon Course’. Participating in the hindleap can significantly boost someone’s confidence and determination. Of course, there will be instructors to keep everyone safe and happy.
  6. Abseiling Tower: Each person must climb to the top of the tower by themselves. Once at the top, you must lean backwards and descend 40 feet down. You can stop by tightening the grip of the rope, and go down by loosening it. While this is going on, friends will cheer from the ground and encourage those on the way down.
  7. Evening Time Events: Campfire & night walk
