Thunderbolts Under 14s

Our Under 14s group is our original junior team and our most popular. The session is for boys and girls in Year 6 to Year 9 and is split over two groups:

  • Development: Sundays 11:00 – 12:30
  • Academy: Sundays 12:30 – 14:00

Both sessions run at Bedford Academy and are led by coach Enrique and coach Theo. New members get their first session free.

We’ve been really pleased to see such a wide range of abilities among our juniors, from players who’ve never played but are nonetheless curious about basketball, to those who play for their school teams and are members of our central venue league team.

The success of the Under 14s session has meant it’s grown too big to have everyone training together. Therefore, we have decided to split the group between those who are just starting out or simply want to play in a casual, yet structured environment, and those looking to progress towards more competitive play and move up to the Under 18s team.

We will look to place players in the group we feel is right for them and will always support players that feel that, for whatever reason, the group they’re in isn’t right for them. We’re always available to talk to regarding any queries about your child’s development within the club so please feel free to speak to one of the coaches at training or contact us at

Prices are £60 for the term or £7 per session on a pay-as-you-play basis and we accept cash or bank transfers. Per Basketball England regulations we will need to register all members with them before their third session –  registration costs £10. Details on how to pay any fees can be found here.
