We will let players have exact venues & times when we have confirmed the fixtures.

 

Players who wish to be considered for any of the teams will need to be full members of the club at which ever age level is appropriate. Selection for all teams is at the discretion of the head coach.

About and Achievements

The U14’s program focuses implementing discipline required of competitive sport from an early age and on the development of the players – improving their skill set and understanding of how to play the game. Coaches teach the fundamentals, implement game like scenarios and situational drills. Our young players learn to read and practice sound defence, fundamental skills which underpin Brixton Topcats playing philosophy. Our team slogan is ‘Play Hard, Play Smart and Play Together’. We believe doing these three things on a consistent basis and is the key to the U14s success. We practice integrating core principles and core values of strong discipline, manners, mind, body and spirit.

Fixtures

2020/21 Fixtures to be confirmed.

About and Achievements

The U16 boys program focuses on skills development with a focus on basketball IQ. To have a high basketball IQ is to play the game “the right way.” Those with a high basketball IQ can “see the court” as if they were Neo in The Matrix — able to outsmart their opponents and use their intelligence to elevate the play of their teammates, combining a strong ethos of physical fitness with strong minded mentality.

We understand that basketball is a mind game, ultimately it is the connection of being physically strong, mentally tough and at the same time being calm, smart and tactful. If you embrace this combination, the ‘game’ becomes easy, whether that be the game of basketbal or the game of life. We are proud to teach these skills to our U16s.

About and Achievements

The U16’s girls program focuses on developing mental and physical discipline, IQ and structure of life through the game of basketball.

As Founder Jimmy Rogers once said, “you are not a girl playing basketball, you are a baller who just happens to be a girl”. Our philosophy is to develop well rounded young women who are disciplined both on and off the court. The girls in our programm learn  how to overcome obstacles, and push themselves to the next level through education and sport, personally, and professionally. As Jimmy used to say – we are all about “saying yes to all the positives and no to the negatives”.

We are proud to be developing our U16s programmes in association with Streetgames, Lambeth and surrounding schools.

About and Achievements

The senior Men’s program offers progression for junior players to play at a senior men’s level via Basketball England’s established Local Division 2 League. As most players have progressed from junior ranks, this lends a “family” ethos which echoes throughout the Club.

It is one of our strategic aims to return to National League basketball, providing a platform to support the development of our young players. This will involve bringing together the experience and guidance of our older members of the Brixton Topcats family alongside the exhuberance and excellence of our young players.
