Good basketball club near Echallens V.D

Hi there!
We are moving to Switzerland from France in Janurary 2011 and my 2 sons aged 13 and 10 are looking for a good basketball club near Echallens V.D (north of Lausanne.) My older son currently plays at pre regional(departmental) level...... Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Ros
how about the club from Échallens? (google works a treat)
A problem with smaller clubs is, they sometimes don't have enough kids in every category so that for the respective category the season has to be cancelled. But good for your sons you are going to live in the Romandie as Basketball on a national level is pretty much dominated by swiss french and swiss italian teams.

Bigger clubs in your region, which probably have less problems to be playing all seasons in all categories are Lausanne Basket and Fribourg Olympic.

Maybe someone with personal experience in the region can give you more detail, good luck with your move!

Re: Good basketball club near Echallens V.D

Thanks for this- I have looked at the website for club in echallens and it does indeed appear that there is no junior section at the moment??!!! As you say, maybe we need to be focussing on the larger clubs-in and around Lausanne. Maybe there is someone else out there who is a member of one of these clubs who could advise further? If so-please get in touch!!! Ta very much

As far as I see the Juniors are the only category where they say there is no team right now. This should be no problem, as your sons would be too young for this (you can see the different age groups under "Equipes"-->"catégorie par années de naissance"). The page does not say the same for the lower categories but instead has a contact mentionend, from what I guess is the coach. Contacting them or the club in general directly would be good.

You can always ask different clubs if your kids could go for one training session to see how it is.
Anyway, it's a great way to find new friends in a new country, good to be thinking ahead for them

Hi,

I recommend you try Pully Basketball Club. Our daughter started of with these guys when we first arrived. However due to studies she had to pull out.

With my understanding of basketball (15+ yrs) this club is just what you are looking for.

I will look for their contacts tomorrow and pm them to you

Re: Good basketball club near Echallens V.D

Hello, I have been a part of swiss basketball for many years. I have even played professional basketball here. I do know the coaches in pully basketball well. This is not too far from echallens.

You could contact me with all the information for the kids you would like to have play. (Age, date of birth, years of experience, etc)

Also, I am a fitness expert and have been training athletes and non-athletes for more then 20 years.

If your kids are looking to improve in there sport, then a personal coach is the way to go. The team practices are just not talored enough to each players individual needs.

If interested, I await your response.

Thanks

Taryll Albert

Dear Taryll,
Thanks for your message. For now, both boys have decided to join their local club in Echallens. If things change and we feel that one or both need more individual coaching/training, I will be in touch.
Thanks again
Ros
