Technical courses

Our technical development plan aims to make the Sussex Bears Basketball Club a centre for technical excellence for the development of Coaches, Referees, Table Officials, and Statisticians. We do this by regularly running approved Basketball England courses, technical clinics, and support groups using Facebook, our website, and other online systems.

Frequently asked questions

Bears members / registered players receive a discount of 50% on L1 Coaching courses, £10 discount on the L1 Table course, and a £15 discount on the L1 Referee courses.

Sorry but there are no discounts available for group bookings, although we are happy to invoice clubs wanting to book multiple candidates.This will be for the maximum number of candidates you book, or the number that attend, whichever is the higher number. Sorry, but last minute additions and cancellations have caused additional administrative work plus the need to order more BE packs (at additional cost). We work hard to keep prices as low as possible and thank you for your understanding. Other terms and conditions are contained in the application form.
