Head of the LRF JNBL Academy, Tahir Hajat, is excited about welcoming new talent to the club. ”The COVID-19 break came as a surprise to the whole basketball community and I believe it has brought the community closer together. A chance to take a step back and review how far we have come. The current academy players have been raring to go and will also be trialling alongside new players this season. Myself and the coaching team are thrilled to open registrations and begin to get things back to the new normal. We look forward to welcoming new and returning players back to the Morningside Arena.”

By registering your interest you will be the first to receive information about the dates and times. All players that attend the event will be given the opportunity to play more basketball. Players of all abilities are welcome.
