Our Newcastle Eagles Academy will be offering a new experience to players aged 16-19 years old from this September.

An academic and sporting partnership between Eagles Community Foundation and NCG has lead to the creation of a new structure which will enable players to access to:

  • Up to 14 hours of training per week
  • Specialist Strength & conditioning and physio sessions
  • Individual and small group workouts
  • Basketball training planned around their academic timetable
  • Multiple levels of Basketball England competition

The new model will see the Eagles Academy work with players who choose to study at either Newcastle College or Newcastle Sixth Form College as part of this new and exciting collaboration with one of the country’s leading college groups.

Principal of Newcastle College Scott Bullock with Managing Director of Newcastle Eagles and Chairman of Eagles Community Foundation Paul Blake.

Players will be able to study everything from vocations courses to BTECs and A-Levels with their basketball training built around the schedule to create a high-quality basketball student-athlete experience.

This new tier of our Eagles Academy will replace our old model, which saw us compete in the Elite Academy Basketball League (EABL). The academy will also now move away from the provision of Diploma in Sporting Excellence (DiSE) as in previous years.

Under our new programme, Eagles Academy student-athletes will now be competing at various levels, to cater for all standards of player, including College Basketball League (CBL) amongst others.

We will be hosting an information evening at the Vertu Motors Arena on Monday 26 June from 6pm for interested students and their parent/guardians and registration for the event is open now.
