Child-Centred. Family-Focused. Coaching-Committed. Using basketball to promote and develop Confidence, Togetherness and Perseverance within our local communities.
Blueprint Basketball was founded in 2021 by former Professional and Great Britain Coach, Matthew Harber
Blueprint Basketball creates, develops and promotes a thriving and vibrant mini-basketball infrastructure for coaches, families, schools and children throughout Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
We are an independent organisation committed to providing outstanding and inclusive basketball provision to children under the age of 11 years old; both within primary schools and the local community. Our coaching, session content and infrastructure are carefully and progressively designed to facilitate a successful and exciting introduction to the game of basketball for all young people.
"Basketball caught my entire imagination back in 2001 when I first picked up a ball. I owe so much - my friendships, relationships, experiences and values - to this beautiful game."
Founder and Director
Smiling. Listening. Laughing. Our coaches are committed to the safety and support of each and every child.
As the saying goes, 'It takes a village to raise a child.' We would love to be part of your village and you to be part of ours!
Friendly. Enthusiastic. Patient. Just a few of the qualities our coaches have. We develop and drive coaching forward in our community.
We believe in using basketball as a vehicle to help develop our next generation of young people;
- creating future leaders, ambassadors and role models for years beyond our own.
Our coaches are trained and developed to 'bring to life' our values through the sessions, games and events. Our strategies include:
- Sticker schemes, awards and prizes
- Games and activities with hidden morals
- Coach briefings, de-briefings and analysis
- Storytelling and imagination
Having the belief you can achieve something, no matter how big or small, and no matter who tells you otherwise!
Life is better and more fulfilling when you can share your successes and problems with others. You can always achieve more when you have help!
Working hard is not always enough. It's also about building and developing resilience to keep working hard when things aren't easy!
Our ambition is not only to develop youth basketball within our community, but to help young people acquire and refine these values, in order to support and guide them throughout their adolescent and adult lives; both inside and outside of the basketball court.
