Basketball Cluster Club Competition


Active Stirling was delighted to play host to more than 75 pupils from across Stirling for their biannual P4-P7 Basketball Cluster Club Competition on Friday 14 December.
Active Stirling invited participants from the four basketball cluster clubs in Stirling Schools to The PEAK for some friendly games and to put into practice the skills the pupils have been learning at their weekly club over the last 12 weeks.
Active Stirling launched the Cluster Club programme in March 2018, which has resulted in an increase in basketball extra-curricular participation, with over 150 pupils participating in the programme. The programme provides free basketball opportunities for P4-P7 children in Bannockburn, Dunblane, Stirling and Wallace area, and is delivered by trained basketball coaches.
“It was amazing to have so many young people along on Friday night,” said Ruth Henderson, Active Stirling Community Activation Officer, “showing off the skills they've been learning through the Cluster Basketball Programme. Active Stirling would like to thank all of the basketball coaches and supporting volunteers who deliver the programme week-to-week and who came along to support their teams on the night and assist with refereeing. Also thanks to the volunteers from Stirling Youth Team's Twilight Basketball programme who came along as table officials. Well done and thank you to all the participants and parents that came out on a Friday evening before Christmas and had a fantastic night of basketball!”
The clubs are now on their Christmas break, but will restart in February 2019 - with information coming out to parents and pupils through schools in the New Year.
