let’s build success story together


According to healthcare experts, children aged 5-18 should have at least 1 hour of physical activities at moderate intensity every day. Also, it is recommended to exercise at vigorous intensity 3 times per week.

Learning how to play basketball allows children to achieve these goals while becoming healthy and physically fit. Once the basics of this game are grasped, kids can practice at home. Basketball is an intensive activity that teaches children coordination, concentration, and cooperation.

As a team sport, basketball also improves the ability to communicate and solve basic problems. Basketball develops social skills that are useful in any future events. Also, playing in a team allows your child to make friends and become involved with their peer group.

At Baltic Stars, we believe that basketball is beneficial mentally and physically as well as a great future career prospect. According to BBC, basketball participation numbers have been steadily increasing in the UK for the last 10 years. Globally, basketball is now the 2nd most popular sport in the world (after football).

We are a close-knit community, aiming to develop children not only physically, but also mentally. This is a place to learn core life values, such as loyalty, respect and determination, through fun and engaging sports.
