The Westminster Warriors Basketball Club has been developing local talent across West London since 1987. During that time, the club has developed a proud tradition of positively impacting the lives of young people from our community. We understand the role basketball can play in the overall development in young peoples lives and use basketball as a tool to nurture responsible, progressive, conscientious young adults.
We believe in teaching the proper fundamentals of basketball in a disciplined, safe, yet fun-filled environment. Our coaching staff are amongst the best in the country, with a track record that places us as the only club in the UK to have developed 5 Senior Mens England Internationals all from within a 3 mile radius of our home (Moberly Sports Centre).
Over the years, we've also developed a number of players from our program through to the US scholarship and professional levels and have strong and extensive links in helping players find the right progression pathway that best supports your talent level and potential.
As impressive as that is, we are just as proud of the many former Warrior players who have gone on to excel using the lessons learnt as a 'Warrior' in fields outside of basketball, such as business, entertainment, law, computer technology, investment banking to name but a few areas in which our former players have progressed through to with outstanding results.
We believe we represent what community basketball development should be all about: using basketball as a tool to prepare young people for success in the game the game of life. Our aim is to nurture a sense of responsibility in all our players and club members so they may become productive, positive and contributing members of their community.
The coaching at our club is steered by a collective 'brain trust' of over 50 years of basketball knowledge and experience, spanning all levels of the game from both a playing and coaching standpoint. All our coaches are CRB certified and between them, hold England Basketball coaching qualifications from Level 2 through to the advanced Level 3/Tutor level. Our current coaches have played or coached at the National, International, US Collegitate and Professional levels and are well-equipped to help develop any young player wishing to learn how to play the game the right way.
For those new to the 'Warrior Way', we are warm, welcoming 'extended family' type club who believe in helping every player at our club reach the peak of his/her potential. The journey many players take with us, is one of self-discovery as they learn more about just how good they can be as an individual and as a valued teammate, both on and off the court.
We welcome all abilities and interest levels, however will challenge you to work with us in developing your skills in the pursuit of excellence as you nurture the champion within you. All our coaches believe in the values of respect, hard work, goal-setting, a positive attitude and understanding how to work as part of a team. All we ask of you, as a player, is that you bring a willingness to learn and are ready to work!
Our style of play is athletic, uptempo and exciting to watch, yet well-drilled, fundamentally sound and enjoyable to play. The club fields teams at the Senior Men's and Women's level, in addition to Junior teams at the U18, U16 & U14 levels, respectively.
