East Lothian Dragons Basketball Club is an open and inclusive club providing kids in East Lothian with the opportunity to play our fun, fast paced sport in a safe and nurturing environment.
As a club we provide a friendly and welcoming environment for kids from P4 to S2 to train and play basketball. We continue to provide opportunities working in association with Active Schools to introduce as many kids as we can to basketball, to develop their skills through the age groups in our various training sessions and play games for the club. The U12 Boys, U12 Girls and U14 Boys get the opportunity to play in the We Play Together with other local teams once a month in Edinburgh and we are hoping to add the opportunity for U14 girls to play too this year.
We also have an adults pick up session running once a week where anyone looking to learn the game or get back into the sport is more than welcome to come along.
Our coaches, who are all fully qualified, first aid trained and PVG checked, not only provide our kids with basketball skills but mentor them to give life skills which develop them as players and people. While we are a small club we are very proud that we have developed players who have gone on to represent Scotland and GB basketball with other clubs after their time at the Dragons has finished.
