BSA offers recreational basketball programs for youth aged 5 though 16. The program seasons listed below are subject to slight modifications due to venue availability and other program considerations. The most up-to-date registration information is available here.
Our winter basketball program runs from December through February.
Q: Where do I find the season schedule?
A: Your team's schedule will be listed on the individual registration page for your age/team.
Q: Where are the trainings held?
A: All of our programs are held at venues in the Brussels region, including the gyms at our partner schools International School of Brussels (ISB) and St. John's International School when available.
Q: What is the team structure?
A: While this changes somewhat depending on the season, BSA typically offers U6 and U8 Coed programs and U10, U13 and U17 boys and girls teams.
Q: My child has never played before, will he/she feel welcome?
A: Absolutely! BSA welcomes children of all experience levels and proudly supports kids in learning new sports.
Q: What should I do if my child is sick or otherwise cannot attend the training or a game?
A: Coaches are asked to share their contact information with team parents. Please let your coach know if your child cannot make his or her training session or game so that the coach can plan accordingly
Q: Is it necessary to stay with my child during games and practices?
A: BSA requires a parent or guardian to be present at practices and games for all children age 8 and under. For children aged 9-12 you must accompany your child to the field to be sure that a coach is present before leaving your child. You must also be there to pick them up following the practice or game.
Q: What equipment do they need?
A: Children should wear comfortable shorts, shirt and athletic shoes. BSA provides all other equipment.
Q: Who are the coaches?
A: The BSA basketball coaches are dedicated volunteers (often parents of team members) who offer their time to support BSA in the mission of bringing quality, community-centered sports programming to any child who wishes to play – regardless of the child’s background or ability. Volunteer coaches participate in a volunteer coaches’ orientation prior to each season and are supported by the BSA Basketball Director and Managing Director in managing any concerns. BSA relies on the dedication and generosity of our volunteer coaches and we welcome new parents to get involved – even if you haven’t played in years! Our Volunteer page offers more details about supporting BSA as a volunteer coach.
Q: Who should I contact if I have concerns or questions?
A: We are here to support you and answer your questions. Please contact BSA Managing Director with any questions.
