FAQ'S ANSWERED FOR PLAYERS LOOKING FOR A TEAM

One of the first goals new players to our sport have is to join a real basketball team so you can play in organised games. However, the problem with joining some teams is, there simply isn't enough practice time to work consistently and continuously on individual fundamental skills development, to help you improve as a player so you can be at your best when the opportunity for real games finally arrives. Add to that, most players at organised club level have already been playing for some time and know the basics and seem to already know what their coach wants, which can make joining a team daunting for new or inexperienced players.

Hoopstars is designed to solve this problem by focusing on equipping new and developing players with all of the fundamental physical and mental skills you need to 'make the team'. Knowing how important competitive games are to the ongoing development of young players, we also link all of our Hoopstars sessions to LSB affiliated clubs who compete in the Community Basketball League, which means, once you progress up the levels with your skills in Hoopstars, you'll be drafted into a real team so you can play organised games in London's most exciting youth basketball league!

The following teams who compete in the CBL are based in or near the boroughs featured in their names and have all signed up to the LSB club partnership program:

North London: Barnet Blitz, Enfield Energy, Islington Power

West London: Brent Panthers, London Amazons, Hounslow Hurricanes, London Elite, Ealing Eagles, Hammersmith Hornets

East London: Havering Heat, Tower Hamlets Tigers, Redbridge Raiders

South London: MM Prep, Bromley Bears, Greenwich Giants, Croydon Phoenix, Wandsworth Wolverines

*More teams are being added to our affiliate program, so be sure to check back regularly to see additional options.

No, you do not have to join Hoopstars to play in the CBL, however, joining Hoopstars and progressing through the program guarantees you will be able to join a team that competes in the CBL.   

Attending Hoopstars isn't mandatory for any player - it is up to you (and perhaps your coach and parents) to decide whether you can benefit from improving your individual skills - even after you've 'made the team'.  Team practices are usually focused on team strategy and team play, with less of a focus on your individual skills development.   Hoopstars continues to build and improve your individual skills throughout the 5 stages of the program.  While there are players in the CBL who grade at a level 3 within the Hoopstars program, players who complete all 5 stars will have a strong advantage over their competition through to a National advanced player standard.

We are expanding Hoopstars sessions all across London, however, there are several boroughs that still do not have an accessible Hoopstars session yet. If you live in one of those boroughs and would like Hoopstars to launch nearer to you, please take a moment to fill out the information requested on our Hoopstars Waiting List, which helps guide our decisions on where the most pressing needs are for new Hoopstars courses.
