City of Birmingham Rockets Basketball Club are happy to annouce the partnership with The Sixth Form College Solihull to deliver the new Hakeem Olajuwon City of Birmingham Rockets Basketball Academy. This academy will launch in September 2018 and will be based at The Sixth Form College Solihull.

This is an amazing opportunity for basketball students aged 16-19 years old wishing to complete further education qualifications whilst developing their basketball skills at an elite level. This academy is open for all students attending The Sixth Form College Solihull and there is no limit to what course you can take alongside the academy, whether that be an Alevel, BTEC or Level 3 Diploma programme.

This is an extremely exciting development for the club and a wonderful opportunity for those students involved. Whilst we expect this will generate lots of interest within our club, the academy is accessible to all basketball players regardless of playing experience. We will welcome players from other clubs who wish to take part in our academy and continue to represent their existing clubs.

See the Academy taster day at The Sixth Form college Solihull on Monday 19th March from 4-5pm.
