The LSB is London’s biggest and most comprehensive basketball development organisation. We are getting more players playing across the city than ever before and at their highest levels. We provide coaching, competitions, support and education that is ushering in a new generation of talent on and off the court, that is helping push London basketball to new levels of national and international success.
Developing players is a major focus for the LSB and we’re committed to helping provide you with the right support and opportunities to uncover your potential and take your talent as far as your passion and commitment to the game will allow.
Our academies partner with colleges and sixth forms across London and provide elite training, daily coaching, excellent academic courses, support, career guidance and challenging competitions to both advanced and developing players from all across the capital. LSB Academies equip and prepare you well for your next level.
The LSB has strong links and direct access to US college coaches, professional basketball teams across Europe, National Team coaches and leading universities throughout Britain. Players who are accepted onto our Varsity program at a LSB-partnered academy are well positioned to fulfil your basketball ambitions, whether at home or abroad.
For those who simply want to continue to learn and play the game at your own pace, without the heavy commitment and requirements of elite program scheduling, our academies also offer a 'Junior Varsity' option which provides regular coaching, games and the opportunity to earn coaching qualifications alongside normal academic college courses.
Whatever your current level, if you’re passionate about the game, aged 16-18 (male or female), and want to get better in a positive environment that provides you with all you need to make it happen, staffed with advanced coaches and an academic support team who genuinely care about your welfare and helping you achieve your highest potential, apply for a trial at one of the LSB Academies below so we can help take your basketball career to the next level.
