Underage teams

UNDER REVIEW

Oblate Basketball Club is very proud of its underage programme.  Under the professional coaching and mentoring of Gerry Farrell and other coaches within the club, we have built up a very credible programme which is highly regarded by other clubs around the country as well as by Basketball Ireland (National Basketball body) and other regional basketball boards.

Our girls programme has been gaining momentum for a number of years now and the reletively new boys section is going from strength to strength.

The boys programme have teams in the Dublin U12, U13, U15, U16 and U17 divisions.

The girls are much more experienced and we have a number of teams which include U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, U15, U16, & U18.  Our ???? team is our flagship team and they also play in the  division to build up as much experience as possible.  They and a number of our other girls teams have done very well both regionally and nationally and are currently competing in the community games.  As Dublin champions, we currently have 2 boys’ teams and 1 girls’ team competing in the Leinster qualifying rounds and we wish them the best of luck. A number of our girls play for the Dublin and Leinster teams and we hope that this will be a regular occurrence.

To encourage player development further and also to elicit new players we run  Basketball Camps during half term breaks, Christmas, Easter and summer holidays.  The camps welcome girls and boys of all levels from ages 7 to 17.  Oblate Basketball Club is very lucky to have a number of experienced coaches to take part in these camps and we often have guest coaches to add something different to the mix.

On a final note, I would also like to mention that we have 3 senior teams.  Our senior ladies compete in the Dublin Division 3 league, senior 1 team and  ladies National League. Our senior men compete in Dublin Division 1.  Our senior players play a mentoring role within our underage programme where we encourage our young players to support our senior teams and interact with them in a fun learning environment which has proven to be very successful as well as enjoyable.

Oblate Basketball Club is always on the lookout for new players of all levels and experience. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your enquiries.
