|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until July 17, 2019

This 3-day event will be an opportunity for youth from around Belfast to improve their basketball skills and participate in leadership training with the goal of becoming future ambassadors for social change in their own areas.  Participants will have an incredible opportunity to be coached by U.S. based skills instructor Chris Dials of The Basketball Embassy.  Dials is a FIBA licensed coach who has directed over 90 international basketball camps and programmes.

The PeacePlayers – Northern Ireland Friendship Games are part of a larger PeacePlayers basketball and leadership initiative.  During the summer of 2020, PeacePlayers’ Leadership Academy participants from Northern Ireland will join youth from other PeacePlayers sites (South Africa, Cyprus, Middle East, U.S.) in Israel for the Global PeacePlayers Friendship Games.
