Coach’s Hub

Braintree Basketball Club


Basketball is a sport that can and should be enjoyed by anyone – this is why we operate on a first-come, first-served basis with regard to team registration. No trials. No prerequisites. The only criteria are the motivations to learn the game, develop skills, and become a positive contribution to the team.

Success is not strictly achieved by ‘winning’ games. Basketball is a sport, and the objective in sport is to win. However, for our players that have never picked up a ball or made a lay-up, they will find success in achieving these things. Braintree has had great successes over the years from entire teams winning titles, to individuals that have gone on to represent the county/region or aspire program.

Our Son Samuel Lincoln has been a member of the Braintree Devils Basketball club for over 3 years, starting as an unfit 9 year old he has developed into a confident athletic teenager who is obsessed with Basketball and now plays a number of other sports for fun and for his school teams.

Mr and Mrs Lincoln

My son Jake has recently joined Braintree Basketball club. From my initial enquiry I found the club admin very helpful and efficient, providing me with all the relevant joining info needed to get signed up.

Lindsey Street

After a really tough start to secondary school life in year 7 with Covid restricting life and no clubs to go to, Thomas was thrilled in year 8 when we got the call to try out for Braintree Blue Devils.

Trudy Linnett-Loizou

My son has come on in leaps and bounds since starting back playing basketball with the Devils in 2021. He has always suffered with severe shyness to the point of mutism but with coach Liam’s kind, considered and supportive approach he has managed to overcome the issues that were holding him back and make new friends, happily receive constructive criticism and all whilst getting fitter and healthier.


My son, aged 12, only joined last this season but it has been the best thing he has ever done.

Susan Kane

Braintree Basketball Club (Blue Devils) is the first sporting club that my son has joined where he has thrived.

Kellie Cocca

The team spirit and the other players have helped him believe in himself. Its a community for the children and us parents.

Layla Np Mcilveen

There is a real sense of community.
