The amazing addition of the outdoor court at Alford Academy has lead to an increased popularity in basketball during leisure time. It’s great to see the pupils using their break times to be active and practice new skills. Basketball has also become more popular at the school, with both junior and senior clubs training on a Monday after school and practice times on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes. The school look forward to seeing more from the teams next year with more games planned as well as hoping to enter some leagues or tournaments. The academy is also working closely with the basketball development officer and school sports coordinators to plan coaching qualifications and holiday camps.
