London Lions is a professional basketball team based in London. They compete in the British Basketball League and their home stadium in the The Copper Box at the Olympic Park.
Sports for Schools and London Lions are working together to give role models to primary schools that inspire kids to do more sport and develop resilience.
Together, we hope to create a lasting link between schools and the London Lions and raise awareness of basketball within schools.
As part of the partnership, schools will receive the following:
- Every school that participates will receive 35 FREE tickets to watch the London Lions at the Olympic Copper Bowl Stadium with an exclusive meet and greet with the players and photos on the court. It’s up to the school to decide how to use these tickets to encourage more physical activity.
- Every child will be given a ticket to ANY game of the current season for FREE
- Follow up by creating a basketball club through the London Lion’ team captain’s coaching organisation (clubsforschools.org)
