SWINDON SHOCK JUNIOR BASKETBALL

No 6.30-7.30 session Monday October 29th (half term)

Programme for 2018 – 19

Swindon Shock Junior Basketball has a long history of organising development coaching sessions for junior age players, and entering teams in Area and National Junior Leagues. Many of our former players have gone on to play in men’s basketball, whether at local league or National League level. Many of the clubs current men’s teams came through our junior programme. One of our former players has recently been selected for Great Britain Under 20s.

An opportunity to play with the Swindon Shock will provide the best possible coaching available in our area on a regular basis, and the chance to represent Swindon in high standard basketball. For boys who have the necessary ability and commitment, it will provide them with the foundations needed to progress in due course to men’s basketball.

In 2018 -19 we will be offering sessions as follows:
