Members of Monaco’s very successful basketball team have been meeting hands-on with young students in Monaco to spread their own enthusiasm for the game. Olivier Basset, Roca Team’s assistant coach, Amara Sy, the team captain, and Jamal Shuler, one of the leading scorers in the team, were at the Révoires school on February 9 to share their passion.
During the visit, students of the fourth and fifth grades (CM1 and CM2) demonstrated a lot of enthusiasm for the sport and its local representatives.
This educational approach is part of the policy of the Directorate of National Education, Youth and Sports to enable pupils, particularly those of Révoires, to become familiar with certain sporting, artistic and cultural disciplines. For example, table tennis, dancing, and bridge sessions are offered to students every Thursday during their lunch break.
Roca Team, currently at the head of the PRO A championship, take on the Antibes Sharks February 14 at 8 pm.
