As a social activity, a sport and an industry, girls basketball is really growing, and there is particular room for growth in our region. It’s also a great enhancement to your child’s education and character.
Her attendance could be the start of a basketball journey. She could also become a trailblazer, leading the way for girls who may also then decide to get involved with the sport, in many different ways.
Arden Griffins 2022/23
The organisation has entered a team in Basketball England’s Midlands Regional Conference for the coming season, offering first time opportunities for next year’s Year 8-11s who really want to give this a go. Additionally, the local league are offering divisions at more girls’ age groups than ever before. And for those who wish to just enjoy the game at school level for now, there could be possibilities in the Junior NBA that Arden Academy have entered previously.
XOBall are all about removing barriers to participation for everyone – not just the elite.
Our home matches in the league will be at the fantastic new sports hall just over at Tile Cross Academy (a 22 minute drive from Arden Academy). Our girls training sessions, starting now and continuing through the summer, could be held either at Tile Cross (on a Tuesday or Wednesday at 6pm), or here at Arden Academy itself, on a Monday evening at 6:30pm, in addition to possible after school sessions on a Thursday.
There will also be vital daytime development sessions in August at various locations in the borough – so we really do have possibilities for everyone, and there’s no better time to start.
But it starts with yourselves.
Commitment and parental support makes all the difference, and having enough players coming together, all trying to be the best that they can, will enable us to run the sessions and teams, and to continue our proud record of create amazing opportunities in girls’ basketball in Solihull.
