The Northumbria University basketball programme work closely with the Newcastle Eagles BBL and WBBL teams, developing students to give them opportunity to progress into the professional game.

Last season the men’s team finished 5th in the BUCS Premier North League and made it to the sweet sixteen of the national championships. 

Players benefit from a programme that rivals a professional team, with high level coaching, team based practices, individual skill development, strength & conditioning, performance analysis and mental wellness.

We pride ourselves on our highly experienced coaching team led by Drew Lasker current Sky Sports Presenter and former 16-year Pro.
