A 6-19 Basketball School at Nairobi International School (NIS) 2013/2014
ALSA, All.One Basketball School will be hosting basketball school at NIS, Nairobi during school holidays of April, August, and December. The term dates will be released one month before sessions begin to facilitate early registration. In December, four children enrolled for the basketball foundation and fundamentals class. This is not a recreation event but exclusive basketball teaching and skill advancement school that takes a scholarly approach to developing players using Long Term Athlete Development model. Successful players will undergo four modules that will lay foundation for their basketball career. This we do before taking players through game specific drills because we strive to develop global players who will not only be able to play the game, but also gain knowledge and understanding the game on and off the basketball court. It leads to free play and long term engagement in the game thus enhancing career prospects for our players.
The school is open to players aged 6 to 19 years old. Players outside this age set may apply for open school.
ALSA to embark on fund raising for its scholarship program starting January 2013
Following the success in sponsoring 7 players from Far East Basketball Association (FEBA), a community based organisation that actively implements sports for development strategies in their local community, ALSA will continue taking the lead role in building the scholarsip fund that will grow to support children from low income areas access higher level academic opportunities using their talents and academic standings. We welcome like minded individuals to contribute to the fund by contacting the lead consultant for basketball development program, Harrison (email@example.com). Last year, the fund received USD$ 1,000 from Brian McCormick of Play Makers Development League plus a donation of USD$1 for every purchase of his publications being directed to the ALSA SCHOLARSHIP FUND.

FAQ1: What is it about All.One basketball school?
Only two in Africa. One is in Ghana and this is the second one.
First, you must understand that heart and desire to learn and improve your game are your greatest assets. It makes you teachable then coachable. Regardless of your skill level, if you are not coachable or teachable, you will waste your time and money. We do not want that.
Secondly, you must value hardwork and smart work. This is not a holiday camp but a basketball development school for those who are willing and able to advance their basketball careers. We appreciate each day as an opportunity to learn something new from our players, teachers, and coaches. All our coaches are parents first, teachers second, then coaches, while our players are children first, second students, then players.
Finally, you must develop desire to advance your game and life, determination to work especially when your chips are down, discipline to practice on your own and take instruction, and defence to preserve the skills you have acquired through "practice in proportion to your aspirations". We will show you how but at the end of the day you are the player who will have to make it happen. It begins with, endures with, and ends with the player.
FAQ2: How does it work?
Our holiday school is currently hosted at Nairobi International School (NIS) in April, August, and December, Monday to Friday 9am-12noon. The school can also be brough to you. We come to a basketball court that is close to you and accessible. It can even be at your home. Once you enrol, we schedule your classes, find an appropriate venue and you begin your journey. You will need a pair of basketball sneakers at least ankle high, a basketball, basketball shorts and a t-shirt, and drinking water. The program has five stages: Foundation : Fundamentals : Training : Competition : Performance. We end at the fourth stage.
