NATIONAL LEAGUE & COMMUNITY BASKETBALL LEAGUE

The Community Basketball League and Basketball England National League is a big commitment and players who wish to play at this level will need to attend training on time regularly (2-3 sessions a week) and be available for games at weekends. It requires a bigger financial commitment from players, as National League iIncurs higher costs to cover the following:

 

  • Entry fees to league
  • Registrations for players with England Basketball
  • Officials fees & expenses for matches
  • Court running costs for training and home matches
  • Kit
  • Travel expenses to away games

Basketball England National League Games are played on a home and away basis. Community Basketball League is played at a central venue. Fixtures will be mainly in and around London and the Home Counties area, with some away games possibly being on the South Coast or East Anglia. We will let players have exact venues & times when we have confirmed the fixtures.

 

Players who wish to be considered for any of the teams will need to be full members of the club at which ever age level is appropriate. Selection for all teams is at the discretion of the head coach.

 

Full Membership at both levels will receive the following:

  • Entry to any training sessions at Brixton Recreation Centre
  • Reduced cost of camps
  • Free participation in events and tournaments
  • Free participation in National League games

About and Achievements

The U18’s girls program focuses on developing mental and physical discipline, IQ and structure of life through the game of basketball. As Founder Jimmy Rogers once said, “you are not a girl playing basketball, you are a baller who just happens to be a girl”. Our philosophy is to develop well rounded young women who are disciplined both on and off the court. The girls in our programme learn how to overcome obstacles, and push themselves to the next level through education and sport, personally, and professionally. As Jimmy used to say – we are all about “saying yes to all the positives and no to the negatives”. We are proud to be developing our U18s programmes in association with Streetgames, Lambeth and surrounding schools.

U16 Boys

Fixtures

2020/21 Fixtures to be confirmed.

About and Achievements

The U16 boys program focuses on skills development with a focus on basketball IQ. To have a high basketball IQ is to play the game “the right way.” Those with a high basketball IQ can “see the court” as if they were Neo in The Matrix — able to outsmart their opponents and use their intelligence to elevate the play of their teammates, combining a strong ethos of physical fitness with strong minded mentality.

We understand that basketball is a mind game, ultimately it is the connection of being physically strong, mentally tough and at the same time being calm, smart and tactful. If you embrace this combination, the ‘game’ becomes easy, whether that be the game of basketbal or the game of life. We are proud to teach these skills to our U16s.

About and Achievements

The senior Men’s program offers progression for junior players to play at a senior men’s level via Basketball England’s established Local Division 2 League. As most players have progressed from junior ranks, this lends a “family” ethos which echoes throughout the Club.

It is one of our strategic aims to return to National League basketball, providing a platform to support the development of our young players. This will involve bringing together the experience and guidance of our older members of the Brixton Topcats family alongside the exhuberance and excellence of our young players.
