A Year-Round Basketball Experience

We cater to various age groups, with 2 x U18s basketball teams, 5 x U16 basketball teams, 8 x U14 basketball teams, 3 x U12 basketball teams, and 2 x U10 basketball teams. We also have several developmental squads to nurture young talent.


At the Suns Basketball Club, the action never stops. Every year we spend 700 hours on the court, playing an impressive 300 fixtures  giving our members an opportunity to immerse themselves in the game they love. This means more chances to refine your skills, experience the thrill of competition, and build lasting memories with your teammates.

But that's not all. In addition to our extensive fixture list, we offer numerous holiday camps. These camp days provide a unique opportunity during school holidays for more than 200 young participants to hone their skills, develop their passion for the game, and enjoy the sport during school breaks. Our camps are designed to be both fun and educational, providing a well-rounded basketball experience.

We believe in fostering a strong sense of community both on and off the court. We're proud to work with our school programs, offering more than 800 hours with over 400 enthusiastic students participating, enriching young minds with valuable life skills, teamwork, and a passion for sports. Through interactive workshops, coaching sessions, and engaging activities, we aim to inspire the next generation of athletes while promoting physical fitness and a love for the game. Together, we're building a brighter future, one dribble at a time. Additionally, we extend our collaborative efforts to the dedicated school staff, providing resources, support, and continuous professional development opportunities to further enhance their ability to nurture and guide the students in both academics and sportsmanship. Together with the school staff, we're committed to cultivating a holistic learning environment that fosters growth, resilience, and success for every child.

The Suns' Progressive Development Pathway

At the outset, we introduce each child to our foundational "Development Sessions." These tailored sessions, initially grouped by age, cater to kids new to organized basketball. Participants engage in skill-building exercises and enjoyable games, fostering a well-rounded experience. From these development sessions, children advance to specialized "Development Squads." Here, they dive into local leagues, engaging in tournaments, and friendly matches, nurturing their growth further. For those displaying exceptional commitment, skill, and experience, a remarkable opportunity awaits – participation in the prestigious National League Programme. This is an initiative, organized by Basketball England, and grants access to the nation's most advanced basketball league.

Purpose and Benefits of Taster Session

The taster session serves as an opportunity for the child to explore their interest in our program. Simultaneously, our coaches will assess the session's compatibility with the child's needs. Please note that only one taster session is permitted.

 

If, following the taster session, you choose to become a member of The Suns, kindly inform us, and we will promptly provide you with registration details. It's important to understand that additional taster sessions cannot be accommodated, and spot reservation is contingent upon full Club registration.
