Welcome to the website of Basketballscool Amsterdam. On this page, we will give you some basic information of what we do and how it works. If you need more explanations, please write an e-mail through the contact page.
Basketballscool has 7 locations in Amsterdam for kids from 6 to 12 years old, boys and girls, to get better acquainted and have fun with the game of basketball. Our goal is to reach as many kids in Amsterdam as possible and teach them the basics of basketball and have lots of fun doing the practices: Shooting, dribbling, defence, playing together and lots of creative exercises. We have professional trainers who have the knowhow to do sports with children at a young age.
On 4 occasions in a season we organize a tournament so the kids can actually play short basketball games against teams of other locations. And then hopefully at the end of a season or two at Basketball’scool Amsterdam, the boy or girl will like basketball so much that he or she will join an actual basketball club in Amsterdam.
Most of the costs of Basketball’scool Amsterdam are subsidized by the city council, the gemeente Amsterdam. The own contribution is: the first 2 practices are for free, after that the registration costst € 7,5 and a ‘strippenkaart’ € 15 (€ 20 as of January 1st, 2017). The ‘strippenkaart’ is for 10 practices.
The season is from September until May and all of the practices are on Saturday mornings, except for the Van Hogendorphal which are on Wednesday afternoons. Usually, there is no practice on the 2nd Wednesday and Saturday of a school holiday (see the roster on the location page). Bring a comfortable sports dress and sports shoes which can only be used inside. You can buy a Basketball’scool Amsterdam uniform for € 25 by sending an e-mail on the contact page.
