Barts Basketball Club received a grant from the Annual Fund to enable them to hire a professional coach, aimed at developing the skills and understanding of the players to strengthen and advance the team. The team has previously never had the budget for a professional coach and has had to rely fully on guidance from senior members.
The new coach joined at the beginning of 2015 and already the team have commented on how the quality of their training sessions has improved, as well as the player’s confidence. Having a coach has also enhanced the status of basketball club, thus it’s had a higher than usual influx of new members this year. With the presence of a coach, the club has also been winning more games than usual.
We have a strong team this season and believe that the addition of a certified basketball coach will improve our performance even further hopefully advancing our position in the London Universities Sports League (LUSL).
