5th and 6th always look forward to the Basketball Blitz. They really enjoy their weekly basketball sessions with coaches Paula and Cian and the Blitz is the icing on the cake.
The Parochial Hall is the venue and a huge number of primary schools converge there to play each other. It is non-competitive, extremely intense and entirely exhausting - and that's even when you're not playing! The schools all play each other and each school has up to four teams.
The matches follow seamlessly one after the other and those not playing are usually cheering their teams on. Paula and Cian the knack of keeping everyone calm, organised, focused and playing their very best.
