City of Birmingham Rockets Basketball Club delivers basketball opportunities to young people from all of Birmingham’s diverse communities. Our club operates, in the main, due to the selfless efforts of our large volunteer staff. This includes a management committee along with coaches, team managers and miscellaneous volunteers.

In 2015, we were extremely fortunate to have NBA Basketball legend Hakeem Olajuwon join our club as an international ambassador.
