At Haileybury Astana we offer both junior and senior basketball opportunities. These programmes focus on the development of specific fitness for basketball as well as fundamental skills for the sport. We have clubs for beginners as well as more advanced learners from Year 3 to Year 13. The latter are involved in our extra-curricular sport for both the Junior National Basketball Association and COASH Competitions throughout the academic calendar.
The football and futsal programmes run from Year 3 through to Year 13. Our coaches have a lot of experience in both the UK and Kazakhstan having a successful record of development at both the foundation and elite level of coaching. We are committed to inclusivity within these clubs, we also offer opportunities for the pursuit of excellence in the sport. COASH is a main focus of the clubs; we also compete in local, regional and national events throughout the year.
Our swimming programme uses the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) of Swim England to monitor and assess progress; these levels run from level 1 to 9. This identifies beginners through to the level of excellence in the sport. Our coaches have many years of experience with all types of swimmers; our programme is therefore suitable for all swimmers with various levels of ability. Presently, our programme runes from Year 3 to 13.
