Academy & Young players

The Swindon Basketball Academy 

Will begin its early phase on June 10th from 7pm to 8pm and is run by Coach Aleksandar Krsteski for ages 14 and up.

Contact:  aleksandarkrsteski12@gmail.com or phone: 07703385954

Our aim is to train players in a professional way in order to provide them outlets for competitive play.  Our clubs participate in Central venue leagues, Local men’s League WEBBA, Men’s Local League WESSEX and National League division 3.  After building relationships with other clubs across the UK we will help you find a home in basketball.

Our 9–13-year-old session will be run by Coach David Colclough from 6pm-7pm at Bradon Forest School.  As with our academy we are looking to grow the club and extend our sessions to twice a week.  We are also looking to train parents and volunteers to take part in helping grow the club.  Feel free to contact me for more details.
