The aim of the league is to give more young people the opportunity to represent their school and participate in basketball matches against pupils from other schools within the SSP.


This is the first (of four) match days in the SSP Yr 5-6 Basketball Development League. All matches will be played in the Sportshall at City Academy Norwich.

Schools are invited to enter up to two mixed squads of up to 7 boys/girls (teams of 4) from Year 5-6 to take part in the development league. There is no minimum number of boys/girls that must be in a squad/team. Four players will be on court at any time.

Teams will be split into three divisions based on ability, with Division One being pupils of a high ability and Division Three being pupils of a lower ability.

Schools are invited to select which Division they would like to take part in when entering. The SSP staff will have the final say on which division teams will be in to ensure there are equal numbers in each division.


All matches will be played indoors so pupils should wear suitable indoor PE kit and footwear.
