A Riders schools family favourite, supported by Loughborough School of Business and Economics, the Hoops4Health workshop is part of a nationwide initiative delivered across the British Basketball League focusing on healthy lifestyles and the dangers of smoking. Targeted at young people in KS2 (years 5+6), this hard hitting workshop entails 4 separate stations all delivered by the Leicester Riders Mens & Womens Professional Players! Schools that sign up for the Hoops4Health programme are also entered into a national competition to compete against other schools.

Duration: 2 Hour Workshop & Team entry to Hoops4Health Tournament (Additional 5 Weeks Coaching available)


After School Clubs
Create an extra curricular activity opportunity for your students with this fantastic after school club package. Provide a basketball after school club at your school to encourage pupils to work as a team, have fun and make friends.

They will also receive first class coaching from the Riders Foundation coaching team. Each student receives a goody bag filled with a Riders T-shirt, programme, poster and session information.

Duration: 8 Weeks

It’s a Challenge
Completely unique to the Riders Foundation schools portfolio, the ‘It’s a Challenge’ programme targets young people who are showing signs of disruptive and challenging behaviour within the classroom.
