City of Birmingham Basketball Club has a proud record over the past 15 years of producing a number of excellent basketball players and more importantly fine young men and women. The club have developed a culture of treating people well and our coaching staff are encouraged to support players in every way they can both through basketball but also academically.

The club has several players who have progressed to play international basketball in recent times. Ex-COB Junior Myles Hesson represents Great Britain regularly and is now playing in the French Pro A division with Nanterre 92. Kofi Josephs has also recently been selected into the Great Britain squad as well as the England National team squad taking part in this summer’s Commonwealth Games in Australia.

On the female side of the club, Michelle Turner recently finished her playing career with the USC Aiken Pacers before taking up a coaching role at Phoenix College.
