BE Support

For those of you who are not aware, the North West Regional Management Committee was re-established in June last year - there is further information available here.

We recently appointed Sam Fitzpatrick as the Coaching Lead for the region and he will have Nick Ibberson and a working group supporting him to provide coaches in the region an opportunity to improve and develop through CPD.

The first task is to confirm the active coaches we have in the region and gauge interest in CPD opportunities. With that in mind, please can you complete this Coaching Questionnaire by the end of Monday 1st March.

Should you have any queries regarding coaching in the region or would be interested in the coaching working group, please feel free to contact any of the following:


Sponsorship Opportunities

MABL are looking to offer local companies the opportunity to sponsor our league.

Benefits of Sponsorship

Basketball is one of the few sports in the UK where participation levels are increasing year in year out. Last year the number of people playing basketball rose by 21,800 to 152,900 each week (source Basketball England).

In Manchester and the North West in particular the sport is extremely popular, with several professional and semi-professional teams in the area and with the development of the new Basketball Performance Centre at Belle Vue all having a positive effect on the sport within the region.

By sponsoring MABL potential sponsors will become involved in one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and gaining access to the potential that the popularity of the sport can provide.
