JUNIOR TEAMS

Our U10 and U12 sessions allow us to introduce the kids to the rules and teach good ball handling, shooting and layup technique.

Our U14 and U16-B sessions are run as a training academy. Players will work with our development coaches providing a route to playing as part of the performance programme in the National League for those who are able to. With an earlier pathway, we aim to increase our standings in the league.

Our U16-A and U18 teams have been competing in the National League since 2008, and we continue to compete at this level.
