Our Club

Poole Piranhas Basketball Club has been officially registered as a Basketball England junior club under the Dorset Basketball Association (DBA) since 2018.

Our Group Training sessions are split into appropriate age and ability categories so that players feel more comfortable and confident as they learn. We have Development Teams which are advanced level to Group Training and entry level for players that wish to learn team based drills and concepts. We also have DBA Teams that compete with other ‘Local League’ teams in the DBA and are reserved for the most experienced players in the club. 

Our friendly experienced coaching team makes each session educational yet fun. We have a great range of equipment and session types to suit players of all skill levels. Also each player can purchase their own branded Poole Piranhas kit, customised with their name and number.

We closely follow the official Jr.NBA™ curriculum and Basketball England’s ‘Player Development Framework’. We work through 4 core skill areas, focussing on 1 core skill per month; Shooting, Passing, Ball Handling and Defence.

Parents and players can rest assured that our sessions utilise many of the 250+ official drills from NBA/WNBA players, legends, coaches, and strength and conditioning personnel that these materials cover.
