Reading Rockets Satellite Clubs

Boys and Girls Age 13-18 Years Old

These sessions are a great way to be involved with basketball outside of school, but not have that big commitment of joining a club. They are based in Leisure Centres, secondary schools, colleges and universities, but are for everyone who wants to have a go. Sessions have an open door policy so it doesn’t matter if you’re not part of the club, everyone is welcome to attend.

The idea of a satellite club is to be fun and informal and it’s all about getting as many students in one area as possible to BE involved. Coaches from the club make sessions as relaxed as possible whilst ensuring your personal and playing skills are developing too.
Usually the sessions are between 1-1.5 hours, after school or at the weekends and run throughout the academic year. Another great thing about them (as if there weren’t loads already!) is they’re usually really cheap to attend or even free!

If you decide basketball is for you and you’re interested in playing in competitions and even joining a team, we can help make the move into competitive basketball all the smoother by offering local competitions to start you off, and gradually moving you into a club set up where you can play weekly and eventually play in the Basketball England leagues!
