Shell Twilight Basketball is a national programme which provides basketball sessions infused with education and life-skills. Sessions are free and are available for all 11-21 years olds.
With support from a number of important partners including the Scottish Government’s CashBack for Communities and Shell, the project has grown into a National programme which provides free basketball sessions in a safe setting alongside the opportunity for young people to shape their own programme and access the information that they need to develop.
The 40 week programme offers free evening basketball sessions which naturally reinforce practical skills, goal setting and teamwork. We then deliver 'Educational Timeouts' and conflict resolution workshops to develop life skills. Mini leagues are set up to allow the mix of various communities. Candidates are then fully supported to become qualified sports coaches.
