We at John Leggott College have our own dedicated Sports Academy where we offer a wide range of Sport Opportunities for students to get involved in to compete or just for fun!

We are also nationally recognised for our support of high level athletes as part of a Dual Career Pathway which means we are TASS accredited to support students follow their sporting success alongside their studies and we adapt to suit this programme with them.

Our JLC Wolves Basketball Academy was formed in 2017.

Our student athletes have basketball timetabled specifically around their studies and experience basketball-specific strength and conditioning and video analysis sessions, in addition to their on-court basketball work.

We are proud that we are able to offer basketball to all. No previous experience is required as we have teams and training sessions are suitable for all abilities. We would encourage anyone interested in learning more to email basketball@leggott.ac.uk.
