Kent Tigers Basketball Programme was created in 2021 from the vision of Tigers General Manager Sten Mayunga who wanted to create a complete player pathway programme for Kent/British players that means they can play elite basketball while also gaining qualification at all levels.

The pathway: After-school club > Satellite club > Academy U12 – U16 > Elite Academy U19 > University Scholarship > Kent Tigers Senior team.

The Programme boasts an exciting basketball development opportunity through the creation of the partnership involving Greenwich University, University of Kent, North Kent College and Kent Tigers. Kent based education programmes play a key role in providing high level education, facilities and coaching giving players aged 11 years and older the opportunity to be the best they can be.

Kent Tigers Basketball Academy is for 12 – 19 year olds, it was created in 2022. The Kent based Academy hosts local British Talent from Kent. All students continue their academic and athletic career by taking their GCSE’s or A-Levels/BTEC whilst undergoing a demanding basketball schedule. The programme for 16-19 year olds is geared towards athletes who have realistic potential to achieve excellence and are seeking to perform at the highest level as their main career goal.
