Here at COB Rockets we pride ourselves on supporting the development of the young people at our club both on and off the court.

We have some wonderful boys and girls playing basketball with us and we are proud of each and every one. Young people often receive negative and bad publicity but in our experiences we see so much good and positivity in the children we work with!

Alasan Njie-Morgan is an outstanding example of a delightful young person with a bright future ahead of him. At 12 years old he has an outstanding attitude to learning, shows great commitment and is an extremely talented athlete who only 2 weeks ago captained the West Midlands Under 13 team during their regional tournament.

His ability to listen, desire to learn and leadership through his performances alongside his great talent bode well for the future.

Alasan has been recognised by his school, Ninestiles Academy for his talents. Voted by fellow students in the end of Year awards, he has been recognised for his abilities and perhaps most amazingly for a Year 7 pupil was voted Whole School Sports Personality of the year!

We are so proud of Alasan, as we know his family are, and he is a fine example of how young people can achieve given an effective support network!
