School Visits and Sporting Schools

At PaRBA we deliver basketball programs throughout Palmerston and the rural area. We offer school visits to both primary and secondary schools through the Sporting Schools, or specifically designed programs coordinated directly.

These basketball sessions and programs are undertaken by our qualified coaches, who engage school students through fun drills and games. All equipment is supplied, and we are able to source equipment for schools to retain as part of our visit.
