The University Sports Centre will be running an England Basketball Level 2 course between March and June, as follows:

Dates: 30th & 31st March, 29th May & 3rd June. 9am – 5pm on all four days.

Price: £145

Booking deadline: 9th March, 8pm

Note: As a Level 2 course, a qualification indicating that the coach is proficient to go out and lead a team by themselves, it will involve more ‘extra-curricular’ work. The course does require candidates to coach a team for one session and coach a game (the game does not have to set fixture it can be a training match); these two sessions must be over seen by either another Level 2 qualified coach or a P.E. teacher.

The course can be paid for at the Sports Centre reception; please feel free to contact Jenny Arroud ( or Dan Bishop ( if you have any questions about the course.


The University Sports Centre are looking at hosting a Basketball Level 2 course during April and May 2015. The course will cost around £145, and involves 24 hours of taught course content.

Each candidate will need to complete a log-book as part of the assessment with a minimum of 2 coaching sessions and 2 games supervised by a level 2 coach or PE teacher. In addition to the log book the candidate will be assessed via a written examination on aspects of coaching, basketball skills and team play and will be assessed practically conducting a coaching session and coaching a game.

Candidates should have a good prior knowledge of basketball (preferably with some coaching experience) and be comfortable with the fundamental skills, structure of the game and basic team play.

Please email Jenny Arroud ( to express your interest in this course.
