About Our Men’s Basketball Programme
The University of Chester Men’s Basketball Programme is based at the University’s main Chester campus. We provide opportunities for students to continue to learn and develop their basketball skills and to represent the University in competitions.
We have two men’s teams
Our First Team coaches are qualified and draw from their experience of coaching and/or playing at a range of levels including junior, international and professional.
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, and basketball-specific strength and conditioning sessions led by qualified strength and conditioning coaches.
