Strength in Numbers @ the COB Trials

The 2017/18 COB Trials took place on Saturday 10th June at Nechells Wellbeing Centre, the home of COB Basketball. Young basketball players from all over Birmingham came to the centre to show off their skills and even single one was a credit to our great city and region.

Everyone at the club was taken aback and delighted at the amazing numbers and great standard of trialists. “We are thrilled to have seen so many players attending today. We had just over 170 attendees across the 3 sessions so naturally we are really pleased that so many young people want to play at the club. I’d like to thank all trialists for their energy, passion and effort today. We are proud that we have once again seen such a diverse and cultural mix of participants, all with great attitudes and so much to offer “, COB Managing Director Robert Palmer commented.

With 49 Under 14s, 75 Under 16s and 47 Under 18s in attendance it sure was a busy day. The standard of players was also extremely high leaving the coaches with some very tough decisions over the summer!
