We’re proud to have a Basketball Academy in the County Sixth Form. We have two teams which both play in competitive leagues, regularly cheered on by up to 100 Sixth Form spectators. Our First Team are in the CBL Tier 2 League after being promoted last year, this is the second highest college basketball league in the country. We also have our AoC Team, which is for students new to the sport and with a keen interest. Once the season begins there will be a League or Cup game almost every week between October - February.
As part of the County Basketball Team students have the opportunity to:
- Train and use the school’s gym facilities daily in the build up to fixtures.
- Develop team offensive and defensive plays via two team training sessions per week.
- Personalised strength and conditioning sessions at least once per week.
- Receive individual skill development sessions to improve your game further.
From finishing with County Basketball we have had three students in the last two years go to the USA and continue their basketball journey at College. We also have many students go to University in the UK and continue to play for teams which play BUCS Premier or Tier 1.
