Basketball is taught to pupils during PE lessons and is a sports option two days a week in both the Michaelmas and Lent terms.
Juniors taking the option are coached in both personal and team skills and encouraged to develop their game by joining the older players until they reach a team selection standard. Senior basketball focuses more on team strategies. We play other independent and state schools, as well as taking part in the Scottish Schools Cup. The majority of fixtures are played during the Lent Term when Glenalmond operates an U18 team and a development structure for U15 players.
