In Marymount N.S. we offer Basketball and Gaelic training to the students. We endeavour to give every child the opportunity to learn the skils of these sports, contributing to each pupil’s physical, social and personal development.
Basketball in Marymount
Over many years we have had a strong tradition of basketball in Marymount. Classes from 3rd to 6th receive coaching from Sherman Hall who is a native of Washington D.C. and has many years of coaching experience. Each year the more senior girls play friendly challenge matches against local schools, which is always an opportunity to showcase the improvements achieved. Many of our pupils excel at basketball in their secondary schools and a number have won scholarships to 3rd level.
