Earlier this week I had the honour of working with Basketball England to help launch their brand new UK-wide school initiative Slam Jam.
#SlamJam is a brand new grassroots basketball programme that aims to make the sport more accessible to teach & learn in schools across the UK; focusing on physical literacy, fundamentals of movement & engagement with sport.
As host it was my responsibility to help bring the launch event together; for the school groups taking part, professional coaches & players, VIPs & media in attendance. Overall an amazing role to be trusted with.
It was an absolute blast too! From getting school children hyped & engaged, to interviewing NBA legends & current England international stars.
However despite all the fun… I’m still TERRIBLE at basketball.
Personally I cannot wait to see Slam Jam rolled-out in schools across the UK! (180,000 kids taking part in #SlamJam by 2024).
