College Forms New Partnership With Cheshire Phoenix!
The Academy is designed to meet the needs of elite athletes aged between 16-19 who wish to continue their sporting career and gain a high level education at the same time.
At the Academy we are unique in the fact that our institution sits below a further player development pathway based at Cheshire Phoenix. Our link to Cheshire Phoenix professional BBL team is unique in comparison to the other elite basketball academies.
There will be opportunities for players to train with the professional team and even be a part of the professional team’s roster for the 2017/18 season. This was achieved by current student Louis Rogerson-Evans who plays for both the U18 and BBL team this year.
Competing in the Academy Basketball League (ABL) which is a high level of competition, comprising of 30 teams that prioritise Basketball.
The academy will help provide a career in basketball but most importantly a career after basketball.
