Primary School Open Sessions Return to The Crags

After a busy Summer of basketball at The Crags the open sessions will return to there normal times along with the start of the Edinburgh school term. There will be 3 sessions per week on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

If you are a returning member to our open session we look forward to seeing you again and building on the skills you gained last year.

These are also ideal session for beginners as we provide fun coaching sessions for children aged 5-12 that develop skills, confidence, communication and teamwork.

The P4–7 sessions are for girls and boys who are just starting out in basketball or currently play at their school and want to develop their skills.

The P1-3 session for girls and boys introduces basketball in a playful way. This session is run alongside the P4-7 sessions to support siblings and friends of different ages.

No booking is necessary but you can book in advance or show up on the day.

Tea, coffee and WiFi are available in the reception area for parents who wish to stay for the duration of the session. Free parking is available also.
