Basketball has finally returned and is looking like it will be staying.
We have been working tirelessly to bring basketball back to our local community and as of the 27th of April we have done just that with the help of an amazing partner in the shape of Renfrewshire Leisure.
Beginning with a return to outdoor basketball for our academy players meaning fitness upon fitness with our partnership personal trainer (and Saints Parent) Suzanne Kerr with SKFitness and about 2 weeks of trying to remember the rules of our sport.
Since then indoor basketball has returned and on the 3rd of May we began our campaign to get as many new young people involved with our amazing sport as possible and have been able to amass now over 200 players on court each week which the help of our Academy Coaches and developing young coaches who have helped to deliver our Superleague and GirlsHoop Initiatives.
GirlsHoop itself has been able to get 30 new young girls on court playing basketball and our amazing young coaches are driving the #GirlsCanHoop movement by creating role models for these young girls to aspire to imitate as they grow in their basketball journey.
