We are looking to recruit more aspiring basketball players who wish to combine quality education and elite sport.  I have enclosed a little information about our Basketball Academy here in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire for students aged 16-19.

There are a selection of 3 schools to choose from which enables us to offer successful candidates Academy places that cater for both boys and girls at various educational levels (BTEC’s, GNVQ’s, A-Levels).

 After our first academy year we gained promotion straight into the BCS premier division for year 2 and now compete with some of the best academies in the country.

It is possible that we could arrange accommodation with host families for students that live too far to commute. Players will have the chance to train 5 days a week in the Academy and will also filter into our national league program at under 18s and seniors. We also play in local league competitions too. We have a great provision and can ensure players get to play at their appropriate level.

That said if a player joins the Academy and wishes to continue playing for their club team at the weekend that is fine. They will get hours of training during the week and be able to return to their club a better player.

We also have good contacts with exit routes for players to universities in this country and in the USA.

If you have any questions about the academy and the benefits then please do not hesitate to contact me or look at our website http://www.buckshornets.co.uk/academy/    .

Kindest regards
