At six stations, the students got a taste of the sport and learned a lot about basketball. The focus was on dribbling, passing, throwing, basket handling, ball handling and coordination.

In addition, three bundesliga players visited our school last year, providing a lot of information and leaving a special impression."

With our training we want to ignite the spark for basketball." he considers it important to convey values in fair play and as a team player.
