Mini-Eagles sessions are perfect for children as an introduction to basketball. The theme is very much game-based, with a high emphasis on keeping the children on task at all times, and teaching the correct technique in a supportive and positive learning environment.
Since the sessions began in October 2017, they have proven to be a perfect platform for the children to develop the confidence and skill levels to feel comfortable when they progress to one of our Eagles Community Foundation club sites, which is set out as the key objective from their initial participation.
