The London Lions and Hackney Community College established a partnership in 2014 but the Hackney College Basketball Academy already boasts seven National Championships for men and five for women.
Apart from the support of the College for the Partnership there are plans to raise additional sponsorship raised which will go towards increasing coaching staff for the programme and assisting in individual development and fully equipping the boys and girls in the programme with requirements such as kit, bags, footwear and much more.
Former HCC Graduate, Perry Lawson described his time at the College and his path in professional basketball with several others playing the game at the highest level, alumni like Orlan Jackman, Allie Fullah, Darius Defoe and many more.
We are proud of our focus on education and sport and have an exciting vibrant ambiance at the Academy. The partnership with the London Lions allows for a close look at professional basketball and gives our students, male and female a taste of that.
