Community Sessions

Ware Rebels Basketball Club, through ‘Basketball Partnership’ provide weekly community coaching sessions within East Herts and Broxbourne. The sessions provide coverage for 3 particular groups –

Years 3 – 6 (8-11 year olds) and Years 7 – 11 (12 – 16 year olds)

Primary Community Sessions

The primary community sessions are run in partnership with Wodson Park Sports Centre. They are based around allowing every individual from 8-11 years old the opportunity to play basketball and improve, developing their skills and enjoying the game to prepare them to more forward in their basketball development. Each session costs £4.00 and can be booked directly with the sports centre.

Special Olympics East Herts

Ware Rebels work closely with Special Olympics East Herts to support the development of SOEH Basketball Club. The club provides the opportunity for both children, young people and adults with learning difficulties to participate in basketball on a weekly basis. Rebels support the club by providing coaches to deliver at the sessions and are also looking to further develop this partnership by offering SOEH the opportunity to attend Rebels home fixtures and participate in sessions before and during senior fixtures on the show court.
