NTC Basketball - going beyond in California!

Finally, after much anticipation, it was time!  At the end of the Easter holidays, 30 of our Basketball Academy students travelled to Sierra Canyon, California for the trip of a lifetime.

This basketball-focused trip has included daily training and practice sessions, study hall, friendly games, sessions with special guest coaches and college visits. If that wasn't enough, the students have also visited Venice Beach, Malibu, Universal Studios, NBA and Baseball games and met some famous faces along the way!  Did we mention the hotel has a pool?!

This life-changing trip has only been made possible thanks to funding from the Turing Scheme, the UK government's programme to provide funding for International opportunities in education and training across the world.

Visit our gallery to see more of their trip.

Fun Facts:  Sierra Canyon's basketball team have their own reality TV show called  'Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers' featuring Lebron 'Bronny' James Jnr.  Kendall Jenner attended Sierra Canyon and was part of the cheer team!
