We offer opportunities for players to improve upon their existing basketball skills in either a 1-2-1 or 2-2-1 environment so that they can realise their true potential. Personal basketball training sessions are by appointment only and conducted at our recently refurbished outdoor facility at the Branksome Centre, Poole.

Personal basketball training sessions can usually be run any day of the week, weather depending, officially within the periods of 1700-2030 Monday to Friday (floodlit as necessary), and 0900-1400 on Saturdays and Sundays around group training. Other times in the week may also be possible on an adhoc basis. 

Our personal training sessions cover the specific skill areas of shooting, passing, ball handling, defence, footwork and conditioning that benefit the each player’s chosen position; be it Guard, Forward or Center. This way players become tuned to the role that they were intended for. Alternatively, we can cover a broad range of skill areas so that players become well-rounded individuals, ready to take on any position in the future. We closely follow the official Jr.NBA™ curriculum. 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.

For 1-2-1 training the cost is £15p/h for non-members, and £12.50p/h for members. For 2-2-1 the cost is £22.50p/h for non-members, £20p/h for members.

No matter how experienced a player is or how old they are, there is normally an area or two which needs improvement. Sometimes they know about these areas, and sometimes they don’t! This is why we offer a FREE assessment to non-members to establish the areas we should cover in the player’s development.


Members should contact Coach John. Non-members, please register your interest today!

In summer 2020, our court was professionally cleaned, club brand surface painted with premium grade paint, repainted backboards and got new nets. Many thanks to our sponsors who without their generous help, our court would not be what it is.
