First steps towards a brighter future

Firstly, I would like to welcome you to WY Basketball CIC and thank you for spending time discovering who we are and what we are about.

WY Basketball CIC has been established with the sole aim of increasing the opportunities for people to play basketball in West Yorkshire. It is that simple. We have intentionally made our objectives as broad as we can. We want to be a flexible organisation, structured in a way to both jump at opportunities and to tackle challenges as they arise.

We are born out of understanding and experiencing the power of basketball first hand. For me, it was almost 40 years ago that as a small child I found my love for basketball; a passion that has never left me. As for Greg, he is the driving force behind the rise of Spen Valley Vipers. Greg understands the potential impact basketball can have in West Yorkshire and the positive effect that well organised basketball can have on the lives of so many different people.

Like me, Greg is determined to see if that effect can be spread far and wide around West Yorkshire. However, we are both fully aware that on our own the impact will be limited. So we want to bring together as many likeminded individuals as possible. We want to unite and support existing basketball clubs and providers whilst understanding where more can be done.

Our vision for WY Basketball CIC is that it provides the foundations from which basketball in this amazing county can grow, on every level, for everyone. This could be through improving outdoor courts for informal scrimmages all the way through to elite teams performing at the highest levels. We want to have a positive impact upon every level of basketball in West Yorkshire.

We would love for you to come and join our mission. Please feel free to fill out the contact form on the homepage of this website or email info@wybasketball.co.uk and we will get back in touch with you shortly.

Thanks for reading,

Mark
