Hackney Jedis is a young club marked club founded by Perry Lawson former GB international and current London Lions guard. The club is built on hard work and dedication and discipline, these values are drawn from the legend that is Joe White. Hackneys youth have a rich history at being one of the best boroughs in London when it comes to basketball, Hackney Jedis aims to tap into this talent and bring trophies back to the borough.
The children are learning values such as respect and discipline that will not only help them on the court but in any walk of life. Hackney Jedis aims to build positive role models within their local communities by creating new opportunities for young people in the way of coaching reffing and table officiating, making the club self sufficient and built with people from their local communities.
Hackney Jedis is breaking down barriers just by people attending training sessions in different areas of the borough and venturing out of their local neighbourhood. The future of the club is looking very successful as we head into our second year searching for our first piece of silverware.
