Basketball at Lee Chapel has become increasing popular with club numbers quadrupling over the last two years. Our state of the art sports hall has definitely been a contributing factor as it is equipped with height adjustable goals to cater for mini and regular basketball competitions. We offer basketball as an extra-curricular club, as well as attending tournaments around Basildon and competing in inter-house tournaments.
Our basketball team (Lee Chapel Lions) aims to dominate Basildon area competitions in the years to come. This will be aided by increased participation from children in Year 3 upwards, not only at club level but with pupils also learning basketball skills as part of the school’s sporting programme. The basketball club and team are open to both girls and boys of all abilities. You don’t have to have played basketball before to enjoy its many benefits.
