About Our Basketball Programme
We are a UK university men’s basketball programme based at the University’s main Chester campus. We provide opportunities for students to continue to learn and develop their basketball skills alongside their studies.
Our coaches are qualified and draw from experience of coaching and / or playing at range of levels including junior, national and professional.
We have two men’s teams and a women’s team that compete in British University & Colleges Sports (BUCS) competitions. We also have a men’s team consisting of current students and alumni who compete in the Basketball England National League, which is a national club competition.
Student-athletes selected for our competition teams have on-court training sessions which focus on developing technical and tactical aspects of the game to improve both individual and team play. Student-athletes can also access fitness, strength and conditioning sessions.
