Have you ever wanted to get involved in coaching Basketball? Have you played basketball yourself and now have kids in the club? This could be your chance. We have vacancies for several of our teams in B leagues and need to get new coaching staff involved. Coaching experience is desirable but not essential. Some basketball basics would be goo though.
If interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your information.
The Club AGM which we were unable to hold as usual in May is scheduled for Tuesday Aug 30th at 7pm in Colaiste Bride. If anyone has any motions or nominations please forward them to dublinlions at gmail.com by Tues 23rd.
We have a new section on the website which has all the information we receive from Basketball Ireland, DLBB, DMBB and the various venues we use, about the return to play on Sept 20th 2021. We advise all players, parents, guardians etc. to familiarise themselves with this information. Please remember that we are all volunteers and that the guidelines we have to adhere to are outside of our control. Your understanding in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Abbey Seals Dublin Lions came agonizingly close to claiming their first win of the season at home on Saturday evening, as they lost out 70-76 to the reigning champions, Garvey’s Tralee Warriors. Lions opened the game in red-hot fashion, stunning the Warriors into a 31-13 point end of first quarter scoreline, with Finn Hughes and James Gormley dominating the scoring. Lions kept the intensity up in the second quarter, and despite a big Tralee push in the second, the hosts still held the lead, 43-37 going in at half time. Warriors regrouped well at the break, with Jonathan Lawton and Paul Dick picking up some big scores in the third, but again, superb shooting from Hughes coupled with some great plays from Conroy Baltimore kept Lions’ in front, leading by 10 going into the last, 61-51. The fourth quarter was where it unraveled for Lions though, with Eoin Quigley, Paul Dick and Lawton leading the way for Warriors, and they kept mounting the pressure before edging into the lead and eventually taking the win by six, 70-76.
“We conceded 31 points in the first ten minutes and really put ourselves into a deep, deep hole,” acknowledged head coach, Pat Price afterwards. “When you make that comeback, you’re gassed. They went on another run after that. Not enough credit is going to Dublin Lions – they’re the best 0 and 10 team I’ve seen in a long, long time. You saw in the last three minutes some of our more experienced guys made some big plays and that was really the difference. We showed maturity and we were very measured. There was no panic buttons pushed. We’ll take it – it’s a great prep for next week.”
Abbey Seals Dublin Lions take on joint top of the table Garveys Tralee Warriors this Saturday in Colaiste Bride in what promises to be a mouth-watering clash. Warriors feature players such as Ivan Bogdanovic, Eoin Quigley and the versatile Kieran Donaghy. Lions will have 2 Americans available for the game as Conroy is fit again and Jarrett makes his home debut. The game tips off at 17:30. Be sure to get there early.
