Basketball Officials' Courses
We are arranging a number of referees' courses this season.
The season 2015-2016 will start in October. We plan to have two men's divisions and a women's division, and weekdays recreational leagues. All clubs, players, coaches and officials must be registered with Basketball England. All games will be played at a central venue. The league will provide officials, equipment, administration and court supervisors, as we have always done.
MEN'S DIVISION ONE
We will have ten teams playing each other twice. The top four teams will qualify for play-offs. Club secretaries will need to confirm their participation and make a first contribution towards the league fees by the 31st July 2015.
Fee: £1,100 (this figure may change) + £15 per adult coach/official + £8 per adult player + £70 deposit
Team confirmed (8): Southside Titans, EY Beamers, Latinos BC, Stratford Royals, London Shadows, Soul, Gepeto Brothers and London Sharks
MEN'S DIVISION TWO

There are about 90 free agents that are looking for a team to play next season. Unfortunately most of the clubs in the league have their own recruitment process and have not given permission to the league to pass their details. We are determined to assist any individual who would like to start a new club to play in the league.
The teams that are currently looking for players are:
London Icons: Ade Adeyeye (email@example.com)
Mandraikos BCL: Panos Plestis (firstname.lastname@example.org
London Sharks: (email@example.com)
Battersea BC: Alex (07794 435 873)
We are working on two weekday events in a central venue where we will offer recreational basketball to both men and women. The set up would be similar to the regular season we play on weekends. The difference will be:
- Introduction of running clock and stop clock games
- Shorter games
- Competitions will be self-funded.
- Players to be registered with Basketball England via central venue league.
