We want to break down the barriers girls and women face to getting involved in sports. Promoting gender equality, developing self-confidence and a healthy body image. In London there are not enough teams or local leagues that offer a place for young girls to play sports and now they have the opportunity to be part of Love Basketball Academy and our under 18 team the LONDON PIRATES.

At our Club we develop role models by using girls as positive influencers and advocates with their peer group. This is Lucca’s testimonial who has been in our Academy since she was 16 years old.

 

LUCCA“Two years ago I started playing basketball for my previous school. I have been completely overwhelmed with how incredible the club is, we train at great venues at a very high intensity, working on fitness, technique and game play. It is allowing me to build a starting ground to play basketball at a competitive level throughout my life and hopefully overseas at university.

In addition, the club currently has over 120 female players. I have met players of all ages, from all over the world. I met women who have unbelievable experience in the game. A prime example of this is Harriet Yea, an ex-professional, who played for Great Britain National team. She won Sportswoman of the Year 2015 for her exceptional feats on the basketball court. Having these players as role models to the younger generations of the club is incredible.

I am forever grateful to be able to play at the same level as my male counterparts. This is a great example of equality in sport. We should all have the same opportunities to play the game of basketball and thanks to Love Basketball Academy this has been made possible for many girls and hopefully it will be able to grow and promote women’s basketball.”
