Reach & Teach are the biggest membership club in England, as recognised by the National Governing Body (Basketball England), and have wide network of talented coaches who are keen to reach out and teach the game to the wider London community.
Supported and endorsed by both the Mayor Of London and Sport England, we have a strong focus on legacy and developing basketball across schools, colleges and communities across the capital. In addition to the programs we run, we provide quality assured basketball coaches for hire to any member of the public, school, college, community group or private organisation. Our coaches provide the very best tuition, covering all levels of ability from absolute beginners through to the gifted & talented elite. All R&T coaches come fully qualified, DBS checked and follow an openly available code of conduct that ensures you know what to expect from us at all times, and we're service driven to deliver the highest levels of customer service, technical ability, reliability and punctuality.
In addition to Basketball England coaching certification, our coaches are also enrolled in our own R&T coach education program, which is designed to continually develop and improve our coaches to ensure you consistently get the best possible coaching at all of your sessions. R&T coaches pride themselves on striving to be the best at what they do and share a genunie passion for coaching basketball, which shines through all the sessions they deliver. All our coaching sessions are standardised across our provision, ensuring the coaching delivered is consistent, of the highest quality and appropriate to required needs.
Our session plans are progressive, fun-filled and designed to introduce, nurture and develop basketball specific fundamentals both practically and theoretically, while promoting the positive characteristics sports can develop in young people. Goal setting, goal-achieving, team work/co-operation, discipline, dedication and the fundamentals of listening, understanding and applying new information are all strongly fed throughout our sessions, which have proven benefits in all of the young people we reach in other areas of their lives. Our sessions also feature an incentive scheme which rewards young people for participation and positive attitude, as opposed to just performance. This has proven successful in retaining the interest and attention of the young people involved with our programmes and allows us to forge longer term relationships of trust and confidence through our coaches that allow us to build skills in a heightened, more receptive environment.
With strong and easily accessible links to basketball clubs throughout the areas in which we teach, young people who possess talent and ability are fed through to the next stage of development, whether that be supporting them through to National League competition, Community Basketball League competition, or feeding them through to one of our Next Level gifted & talented programs. The key is, we aim to work in the best interests of each individual player, to ensure their basketball progression is fully supported and provided for with the right type of coaching and team playing opportunities where appropriate.
