City of Birmingham Rockets are very excited to be able to be launching our post -16 Academy offer for September 2022 in partnership with our academic providers. You will have the opportunity to be part of our academy programme and receive top-level coaching to improve your basketball in sixth form.

We currently deliver our Academy basketball programmes across the region: Broadway Academy in Perry Barr and Solihull Sixth Form College with both institutions enabling students to choose a wide range of either BTEC or A level qualifications to study.

Academy students will receive 12-15 hours per week in line with academic timetables from Men’s First Team Coach Paul Douglas (Broadway Academy) or Women’s First Team Coach Peter Mintoft (Solihull).

This training will focus and provide support on all aspects of the game including individual and team development, strength and conditioning, sports therapy, performance analysis and sports psychology.

Furthermore, you will also have the opportunity to play in elite-level competitions and potentially even for the Rockets First Team.

Join us at Nechells Wellbeing Centre on November 20th for our Academy Open Day event – places are limited so please do sign up using the link below:
