Malta Basketball Association

Basketball Promotion Programme:


This is another part of the MBA programme and which is also offered to all the schools in Malta. The concept here is that the ‘schools come to basketball’.

In fact, in this programme that has been running for many years, a school may opt to have their students within the participating year group/s visit the Ta’ Qali National Basketball Complex, run by the Malta Basketball Association, on a similar technical programme as the ‘basketball goes to the schools’ programme.

Schools opting for this programme, will visit the basketball complex (where all the national youth, junior and senior games are played as well as the house of the Malta Basketball Academy) and do the basketball sessions within the same complex.

The sessions will also be made by personnel engaged by the Malta Basketball Association and using all the equipment already within the same complex.

Given that each visit will be of not less than two hours, the basketball sessions will be longer as the school children will be spending quite some time in order to take part in the sessions which are essentially basic basketball awareness sessions to introduce the game of basketball to the young kids but at the same time also introducing generic physical exercise through core fundamentals and basic body co-ordination activities.

This programme is run by Mr Leonard Falzon and has seen the participation of many schools in the last years.

Below are some photos taken during sessions held during the scholastic year 2016/2017.
