YOUR MVP IS OUR MIP
Each and every single participant at our camps and clinics are our highest priority and we only appoint coaches on our camps who are fully qualified, DBS checked and committed to helping each player improve his or her basketball skills, understanding and overall general health and fitness.
We strive to create a fun-filled environment at all of our camps and take great pride in providing the perfect balance between deep-level learning mixed with fun and good times. There is a reason why so many of our previous participants are first in line to sign up for the next available LSB camps and clinics - we are not your 'average' basketball camp...
Your 'MVP' (Most Valuable Person) is our 'MIP' (Most Important Person) and our camp promise to parents is to do all we can to make sure your son or daughter has the most enjoyable, beneficial basketball learning experience in a safe and secure environment.

"My son had a great time at the LSB camp! The coaches were so enthusiastic and always smiling - he can't wait to come back next summer!"
"We're very happy with the fantastic kits and equipment we received with our coaching from the London School of Basketball. Great service, enthusiastic and positive coaching. We've already signed up again for next year."
"Alex has been great with our year five and sixes - they all look forward to him coming in each week and are enjoying a sport many of them had never played or experienced before. I've seen huge improvements in our students confidence and concentration levels while also improving on their ability to work together on their new team"
"The thing that most impressed me was the coaches really do care about out students welfare. They clearly are passionate about basketball and I think that becomes infectious and picked up by the students. We've seen outstanding improvements this year and I certainly would recommend the London School of Basketball to others looking for quality sports coaching in the school setting".
