SCHOOL GALA DAYS
WSWBA is bringing 3 x 3 to NSW schools
3 x 3 is the fastest growing urban sport in the world right now. Its fun, action packed and offers a great experience for all participants.
Our Gala Days are open to students in years 3 to 6 and is the perfect opportunity to experience basketball through a modified Small Sided Games format. 3 X 3 games allow players to enjoy the game without the pressures of a 5 X 5 full court competition game. 3 X 3 improves a youth players long-term development and is a fun, exciting fast paced game that everyone can enjoy.
WSWBA is endeavouring to create an inter-school Gala Day where local schools can come together to participate and enjoy basketball.
These Gala Days are designed to be an introduction to basketball, with a focus on fundamentals, with skilled based activities and small sided games, without the pressure of competition. WSWBA encourages schools to use this day as an introduction to basketball for students, prior to participation in 3 X 3 competition.
There are 2 pools Years 3/4 and Years 5/6
Schools can enter several teams into each pool. Teams can be made up of boys or girls, or a combination of both. There is no girl/boy ratio.
Scores may be kept, although the focus is on fun & participation.
We can help smaller schools to combine to form teams.
