Basketball is hugely popular in Scoil Assaim; 5th and 6th class boys usually train once a week from January to Easter. Our Junior and Senior teams have been winners many times in the North Dublin Basketball League.

2016 was our first time to compete in Basketball Ireland’s league.

Captain Emmet led the Senior team right through to the final in the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght in January for what was a fantastic and nail-biting game. We were beaten by Ballyroan BNS on the day but the boys did us all proud with their skill and determination right to the end of the match. Roll on next year!
