ESF Tigers Basketball will be launching a new Basketball Development Academy (BADAC) for Under 10s, U12s, U14s and U16s on Saturdays starting September 2017. 

Age Groups, Locations & Times

The new Development Academy will comprise a mix of Fundamental Skills & Games for those born in the following years:

Age Group   Year of Birth  Venue  Time
 Under 10s  2008 & 2009  KJS  9.00am - 11.00am

Skills & Games

Every week, the first part of each BADAC session will focus on developing 4 fundamental skills, on a station basis, such as ball handling/dribbling, footwork/movement, shooting and passing/receiving.

The second part of the two hour session will feature tournament-style intra-mural games played in a round-robin format every week, with teams competing to win a trophy at the end of the academic year. 


Term 1 (2017-18): Saturday 2 September 2017 to Saturday 9 December 2017 (excluding 7 & 28 October 2017)

Terms & Conditions

Please note: It is no longer compulsory to enrol in an After-School Programme (ASP) session in order to be eligible to participate in this new competitive Development Academy Programme.

  • The BADAC programme has already been discounted, so there are no further discounts for enrolling your child into an ASP session. Your child may, however, enrol in both programmes separately.
  • Please note that there are no credit notes, refunds nor make-up sessions for the BADAC programme. 
  • Sessions may be cancelled during the term due to non-availability of the school facilities or due to non-availability of coaching staff.
