As part of his India tour, world-famous Basketball player Andre Miller offered a training session to aspiring young basketball players at Apeejay School, Sheikh Sarai, Delhi's first NBA launched Basketball School.

Participating students had an enriching interaction with Andre Miller who gave them a gamut of tips about the various nuances of excelling in the game of Basketball. Further, the NBA superstar was live-in-action teaching his signature moves to the eager students. The basketball court of the School was abuzz with energy and enthusiasm as Miller encouraged the students to put in their best while also playing along with them.

Dr. Neha Berlia, Member Management Board, Apeejay Stya & Svran Group, opined, "We are glad to be the first School in Delhi-NCR to be an NBA Basketball school which provides NBA trained coaches for basketball training to ours as well as external students. It is very important in this day and age, that children get the highest levels of training and exposure from an early age, to unleash their latent talent and realize their full potential. At all our schools, we adopt a holistic approach to education including the best of facilities for sports and other extra-curricular activities."

 Andre Miller, the professional American basketball player, led a basketball workshop along with NBA Basketball School coaches. The NBA superstar is the only player in league history to have at least 16,000 career points, 8,000 assists and 1,500 steals without making an NBA All-Star Game. The class was followed by the star sharing his experiences at NBA.

All Apeejay institutions focus on providing a holistic education to its students, with equal importance given to sports and other co-scholastic activities apart from academics.
