Barking Abbey Basketball Academy


Tuesday 6th November 2018
7:00pm Sandringham Campus

Barking Abbey School established its Basketball Academy in 2005, giving the opportunity for talented basketball players to work everyday with high quality coaches in an elite development environment.

The mission of the Academy is to provide a situation similar to that found on mainland Europe and in the United States where basketball is scheduled throughout the day around academic qualifications.

The major ambition of the Academy is to test elite UK talent against the best in Europe, whilst preparing players for professional basketball careers. Barking Abbey has participated against competition unmatched by any other program in the United Kingdom, hosting the Nike Junior Euroleague Invitational Tournament and featuring in the Sabonis Cup in Lithuania against some of the best junior club teams in Europe. We have also hosted our own annual international tournament and are committed to travelling each year, visiting Lithuania, Spain, France, and Bosnia in the past four years.

In July 2009, Barking Abbey was announced as the first pilot Institute of Basketball by the British Basketball Federation. It intends to use the school as a major part of its development of young talented players. Barking Abbey has since been granted the status of Regional Institute of Basketball establishing it as a centre that contains the environment and practices needed to nurture future international basketball players.

Barking Abbey Basketball Academy is committed to providing a high performance program. The school has six basketball coaches and additional dedicated support staff in areas of strength and conditioning and physiotherapy.
