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. Fixtures are played during the Michaelmas and Lent Terms when Glenalmond operates an U18 team and a development structure for U15 players. Training takes place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays with the opportunity of further personal skills training on Saturdays. The team is coached by Mr Jeffers who played Junior U19 National League Basketball in the late 1980s and whose career high point was selection for the U19 South East England Squad in 1983.
