Boys Pre-Season Scrimmage 2017


On the 2nd of September 2017, Gateway College hosted our annual boys pre-season scrimmage.

This involved over 100 boys from the Leicester Warriors playing against each other throughout the day.

It was a perfect opportunity for the club to see how the players had developed through the off-season training programme they were on, and also allowed parents to ask any questions about their child’s development and also about the club.

On the day the club also registered a number of new players who are hoping to make it into the National League teams who start their season in October.

U18s Coach Bilaal Kazi Andrews  said “It’s good to have a run out for the kids, and we can see where we are going with our teams. Also it was great to see so many parents on the day supporting what we do.”

Director of Basketball Karl Brown said “The kids are enjoying themselves and that is what it is all about, keeping our kids off the streets and putting them in a safe environment where they learn not just basketball but also life skills.”

Parent Jayesh said “Great support from the Leicester Warriors, my son only signed up last year but I’m loving what they are doing, honest, welcoming club and my son is having a great time!”

A special thanks to referee Jas Kang and all the table officials.
