St Brigid’s Girls Basketball Afterschool Program in association with Killester Basketball Club.

Following on from our great success in recent years we have two teams representing the school from 5th and 6th classes. The teams are entered into a primary school league where they will play local schools in the hopes to make the league finals. The girls train every Wednesday 2.20-3.20pm. There is varying ability on the team with girls who play for different clubs and girls who are starting for the first time! Our aim is to have fun, learn something new and give our school a day out at the finals!

Killester Basketball Club is one of the oldest clubs in the country. Leesa our coach has been involved in this club since a very young age. Killester have coaches in various schools throughout Dublin spreading the love of the game. For those interested in playing basketball there are girls and boys teams for every age group starting from ages 4yrs old. The club also has women's, men's, wheelchair and special Olympic teams. On Saturday’s you are welcome go to our local Irish Wheelchair Association in Clontarf to see some exciting games with the family.

5th class Brigids Girls v Belgrove Girls

IWA 8th March at 2.30

On Wednesday afternoon we had 14 5th class girls in a changing room of the Irish Wheelchair association in Clontarf . They were changing into their gear to play their first ever basketball match representing their school. We had hair being braided, numbers being swapped, shorts being rolled up and all accompanied by a high pitched squeal! Coach Turner thought to herself "I hope they keep this energy for the whole match"...and that they did!
First quarter we went down 2-0 and were unlucky with a few of our shots. Second quarter these ladies kept their heads and popped in 6 baskets in the blink of an eye. Belgrove did really well in the third and  scored 3 great baskets. We still had the lead going into the 4th. Belgrove started to apply pressure defence. Their coach called a timeout which gave us a good opportunity to chat about keeping calm and not rushing. We came out and scored 2 quick outside shots that had our fans jumping for joy. The final whistle blew, the squeals returned, both teams shook hands and we celebrated our win!
