FAQs



Here are answers to some of the common questions we get asked. Hope these help...

 

How good do I need to be?

Obviously as a sports club we would like to win medals but we're also keen to get people bouncing and shooting so our open sessions are for all abilities. Enthusiasm and respect are the key.

 

What should I wear?

We'll provide coloured bibs for games so general sports kit is fine with good indoor sports shoes. We recommend investing in proper basketball boots as they give better support around the ankle and a better desgined for the twisting motions associated with movement in basketball.

 

Can girls play?

Of course! The NWBA youth league runs mixed teams so if you're fed up of the restricted zones in netball or just fancy building up your sports portfolio then come along.

 

What's the youngest age?

As we've only a small number of coaching volunteers we currently cater for 10 years old and upwards. The NWBA will be hosting some Under 12 competitions but the league is for U14, U16, U18 and senior teams.

 

How much are sessions?

All our coaches are volunteers, which helps to keep your cost low. At the moment youth sessions are £3. Seniors will be more due to increased facilities costs. Any profit goes into maintenance of equipment, supporting our end of season celebration and club costs for registrations to BW and NWBA.

 

How do I get into the team?

Firstly, attend training sessions. Secondly, if you have sufficient ability and there's space in the current season we may ask you to register with BW and us immediately. However, some of our teams may be full and so you may have to be patient for the next season.

 

I'm a parent. Can I stay and watch?

Parents are welcome to sit at the sides etc during training but please respect sessions and we also ask that no images are taken.

 

Does the club take images?

As part of basketball Wales, NWBA and club registration we ask for permissions to be able to use images for publicity on social media and in the papers.

 

Wrexham's too far for me to travel, where's my nearest team?

Check out the NWBA website and click on the clubs page. You can also look on England Basketball's website.

 

How much do you pay players?

What?! We're a small, local league club, run by volunteers. The closest professional club is Cheshire Pheonix.
