The U12s Basketball team at Leicester Warriors are halfway through their season and have not lost any games. At the end of December 2015, Leicesters Warriors U12s beat Coventry Tornados 70-12, beat East Hertfordshire 72-7 and then beat the  Leicester Riders U12s Basketball Club 79-28 (Top scorers Tommy 20pts, Kieran 12pts, Connor 10pts).

This is Coach Arbham Giga’s first season with the newly formed U12s, and he has taken the kids team from strength to strength.

“Each year we’ve tried to build the youth program” Arbham said. “This summer we had a record number of younger kids come and train with the Leicester Warriors and we now have a very exciting team. I want to say a special thanks to Corey, Sabian, Aaron and Anthony who have been helping out with the U12s.”

Director of Leicester Warriors Basketball and England U18s Coach Karl Brown said “We have been developing players in Leicester for a long long time and they have gone onto greater things, its what we do successfully. Our coaches through summer have put in a lot of work with the kids and we are now seeing the kids develop into better players on the court and better people off the court. I think we’ve done a good job of putting emphasis on the nice things with basketball. We make sure we take care of the kids. The coaches do a great job of instilling fundamentals, but also making sure the kids have fun. We do a lot with them in the off-season. ”

We are always looking for people to join the Leicester Warriors. So if you want to learn the basics of basketball, or make new friends and have fun, come and join us now.
