Basketball in Mauritius
Basketball is a popular community youth sport, played mainly outdoors due to the year round sunshine. There is a national league that plays weekly to a high standard and many of the school basketball coaches also coach the local league teams. Opportunity to play abroad is limited and therefore the project encourages talented basketball players and coaches to come to Mauritius to share their knowledge of the game.

Your Basketball Sports Tour
Basketball matches will be arranged at the international standard sports centres located around the island depending on the teams you will be playing. Mini tournaments will be arranged to allow multiple age groups to play. The basketball sports tour can arrange fixtures for U12, U14, U16, U18 and Adults.

Basketball in the Community

Our Basketball Sport tour is unique, offering the opportunity for your sports team to give back and help with coaching the next generation. The basketball academy takes place within school grounds in numerous locations around the island.  After school basketball camps are run weekly and you will be able to get involved with coaching sessions for these keen basketball players on outdoor basketball courts. The ability of the players will be from grass roots to high performance but your role will be to deliver clear skills through structured drills working on passing, shooting, positioning, movement, awareness and most importantly technique. You will be supported by local basketball coaches to help you deliver the sessions, at the same time you will be required to lead the sessions autonomously. A key requirement will be to identify talented individuals and provide focused coaching for them to ensure that they can reach their full potential. The hope is that these children are set on a pathway to possibly play for junior national teams.

Basketball Camps
During school holidays a series of basketball camps are run daily in the week and inter-college tournaments will be organised, meaning our sports tours can operate year round.
