Basketball has always held a firm footing as an extra-curricular option for the pupils of Chanel College. There is a team for all age groups; 1st Year, U15, U17 and U19. Training takes places in the school gym every Wednesday by the basketball enthusiast Mr. Black. Here is a man with a wealth of knowledge for the pupils to avail of as they develop their sports star skills. Originally from North Carolina, he grew up playing the game at a very high standard, before moving to Ireland in later years to coach the Co. Cork national league side by the name of the Neptunes. No better man so, to educate the up and coming stars and develop their basketball knowledge and skills on the court.
