Skills for Life & Employment students enjoy annual Basketball tournament
18 March 2020
Last week, students from The Skills for Life & Employment Department participated in the annual Basketball tournament.
The tournament, held every year, is hosted by Sports England at the National Basketball Performance Centre in Belle Vue.
Skills for Life & Employment teacher, Neil Hall, commented: “Students had a fantastic day at the National Basketball Centre. A big thank you to both staff and students who supported the event. We were able to field four teams, consisting of thirty-four players.”
The Salford Knights Disability Basketball Team runs at Eccles Sixth Form College’s Sports Hall. The team is coached by a former student who attended Eccles Sixth Form College.
Lauren Hawkins, a student at Eccles Sixth Form College, said; “I had a great day from the very beginning. I enjoyed travelling on the minibus with my friends.”
“I thought the centre was really good with all the basketball nets. I really enjoyed myself and can’t wait to go again soon.”
