Jersey Basketball Association Altair Academy

Jersey Basketball Association Altair Academy

The Jersey Basketball Association Altair Academy travelled over to France in early March to play matches against AL Bruz (a large French club based just outside Rennes). Thanks to Altair sponsorship, they were able to take approximately 40 players to France at a much-reduced cost (full bursaries were also available for those who needed it).

The teams were able to go and watch a professional game, had two coaching/training sessions from highly qualified French coaches and also played full games against the Bruz age group equivalents.

The weekend was highly successful and gave most of the players a first opportunity to play against teams they had never encountered before. The weekend also forged a new set of sporting friendships and aspirations for these games to become an annual event with the possibility also of return fixtures.
