York Eagles Junior Basketball Club started in 2009 with one team at u13s playing in Basketball England’s National League. Since then the Club has continued to grow and some of our u13s are now at University and beyond returning in some cases to play for York Eagles Seniors.
We offer junior players from aged 8 to 18 opportunities to play in
NATIONAL LEAGUE at u14, u16 and u18
REGIONAL LEAGUE at u12
CENTRAL VENUE LEAGUES at u11 and u13.
Players come from a wide area of North Yorks including Harrogate, Pickering and Kirbymoorside as well as locally in York. Young players are offered a secure and safe environment with York Eagles Junior Club being the ONLY Club to have been Club Marked by Basketball England in North Yorkshire and assessed on their ability to keep young people safe and in a supportive environment.
The Head Coach and Club Secretary is Dave Smith, Basketball England Senior Coach with over 40 years of experience including Primary Schools to Professional Basketball. We develop our players at Eagles to be FIT – focussed, intense and tough to match the requirements of good basketball players. Dave is supported by several coaches who are qualified and DBS checked as you would expect of an outstanding Basketball Club.
Eagles have won 4 Regional Championships in their short existence and regularly provide most of the North Yorkshire Squad as well as always having representation in the Yorkshire Squad.
