IS SPARTANS BASKETBALL ACADEMY
ASSOCIATED WITH TIFFIN SCHOOL?
We are not associated with Tiffin School in any way.
MY CHILD CANNOT DO SATURDAYS, DO YOU
HAVE ANY OTHER WEEKLY SESSIONS?
Yes we do, we also train on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays. Please contact us to reserve a place for your child.
I'VE CONTACTED SPARTANS BASKETBALL
ACADEMY BUT I HAVENT HAD A RESPONSE?
We will always try to respond to an email within 24 hours. Please ensure that you can receive emails from firstname.lastname@example.org. Sometimes when we send emails they may end up in your spam or junk email boxes, so please check these and allow emails from us.
MY CHILD CAN ONLY ATTEND THE FIRST TWO SESSIONS OF A BLOCK, CAN SHE STILL ATTEND?
We want every child to get involved. If your child is in this situation please contact us at
DOES MY CHILD NEED TO BRING ANY EQUIPMENT?
All equipment is provided and a water fountain is available, but it may be worth bringing your own drinks bottle to stay hydrated during and after each session. We do ask that children wear their Spartans t-shirt when training so that everyone feels and looks like a Spartan. Please remember to remove watches and jewellery before training.
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR?
Shorts, trainers (or basketball boots) and a Spartans t-shirt.
WHERE ARE THE TRAINING SESSIONS
AND HOW MUCH IS PARKING?
All Spartans training sessions take place at Tiffin Sports Centre, The Holy Cross School and The German School. There is free parking at Tiffin Sports Centre but no parking at The Holy Cross or The German School.
MY DAUGHTER HAS NEVER PLAYED BASKETBALL, CAN SHE BECOME A SPARTAN?
Yes of course! We encourage beginners to come along and get fully involved in learning new skills and making new friends. Your child can also come along with their sibling, and we offer a discount for siblings who attend together. Please contact us about this at
We now offer two girls only sessions on Tuesdays between 6-7pm at Tiffin Sports Centre and The Holy Cross School on Saturdays between 2.30-3.45pm.
MY SON PLAYS BASKETBALL AT SCHOOL, WHY SHOULD HE ATTEND SPARTANS BASKETBALL ACADEMY?
If your child already plays basketball at school that's fantastic news! At Spartans Basketball Academy we deliver drills that may not be delivered at your child's school. We spend time working with Spartans one-to-one correcting poor technique and boosting confidence. We also give feedback to Spartans so they can practice in their spare time.
MY DAUGHTER ALREADY TAKES PART IN A SPORTING ACTIVITY ON A SATURDAY & SUNDAY, CAN SHE LEAVE EARLY TO GET TO HER OTHER SESSION?
We would hope that our Spartans would stay until the very end of the session to fully participate in games, cool-down, but we fully appreciate that busy Spartans have more than one battle to win on the field of sport. If he or she needs to leave early, just let us know.
MY SON PLAYED BASKETBALL AT ANOTHER BASKETBALL CLUB AND RARELY TOUCHED THE
BALL DURING GAMES. HOW IS SPARTANS
BASKETBALL ACADEMY DIFFERENT?
We believe full participation for all Spartans is essential. We break games down into half court defence to allow teams to make unchallenged progress up the court. We encourage passing, dribbling and shooting from all players on teams and even restrict defence in some situations to help build confidence. We always encourage and expect full participation and teamwork from all of our Spartans. No Spartan gets left behind on the sports battlefield!
