Last Monday and Tuesday, youth coaches from Alba Berlin made a flying visit to the primary and middle school of the Klax School and arranged basketball training. For this purpose, they built several basketball hoops in different sizes and an obstacle course.
The program "ALBA MACHT SCHULE" wants to bring basketball into schools. As the trial lesson showed, it's not only about accuracy at the basketball hoop. The challenge of team sport basketball is the interaction and quick reaction time. The children and teenagers learned how to use their individual characteristics for the team.
The students obviously enjoyed the training and really worked up a sweat during the following match. Some of them showed themselves to be real team players and even received an invitation to the Alba Basketball Day. Afterwards, the Alba-Berlin coaches also gave some tips for the teachers on how basketball could be anchored in school lessons.
