Men’s Basketball Academy in partnership with Let Me Play

Our Basketball Academy combines a sports education with professional training.

Students aged between 16-19 work with coaches who have years of experience in helping players maximise their potential.

Players accepted into the Academy are expected to possess a complete set of fundamental basketball skills in addition to an excellent attitude and an eagerness to learn both on and off the basketball court.

Each player on the academy programme receives a personalised development plan and works closely on the specialised aspects of their game. Players also get the opportunity to take part in tours and gain exposure on the international basketball circuit in Europe and the USA.
