The LSB, in partnership with Capital City Academy, has launched a new scholarship program for gifted & talented student-athletes enrolled at the Capital City Basketball Academy.
The scholarship bursary is aimed at supporting players with demonstrable talent and athletic ability to achieve their full potential by reducing the financial burden of training, equipment, and competition costs - while also providing career guidance, academic support, and an elite player mentorship program to inspire and empower selected players with the skills, access, and information they need to succeed at their highest level, both on and off the court.
Scholarship bursaries range from £500-£1,500 per year, per award and may be used to support direct training costs with eligible areas including travel, equipment, kit, specialist coaching, tutoring, and video performance analysis all geared towards elite performance.
The scholarship aligns with the LSB mission to support players through their journey towards fulfilling their potential while adding significant value to the overall Capital City Academy offer for incoming gifted & talented student-athletes.
"We're so thankful for all of the the support from our partners and contributors to the scholarshsip program. We know how difficult it can be to maintain training costs for many of the aspiring future stars of our game who otherwise struggle to cover the demands elite training requires. To be able to help bridge the gaps for the players we hope will one day represent our sport at the highest levels doubles down on our commitment to supporting the next generation and gives them access to the opportunity to succeed."
- Nhamo Shire, LSB Founder & CEO
