The Sports Development team and Essex Rebels players have been out to local schools in the community delivering our Rebels Roadshow.
The Rebels Roadshow is a great opportunity for children in the Colchester community to learn about the Essex Rebels, the life of a professional athlete and basketball happening in the area. The children get the chance to have a go of playing basketball alongside our professional players with support from our qualified coaches. All the children are also given a free ticket to attend an Essex Rebels game at the University of Essex Sports Arena!
This initiative gives children in our community an opportunity to meet professional athletes, who provide an inspiring, engaging, and fun experience to them. We focus on inclusivity and positive participation, encouraging all children to try their best and work together.
The Rebels Roadshow is available, for free, to all schools in and around Colchester and the wider Essex area.

“Essex Rebels visited St Thomas More’s to deliver a basketball taster session to Key Stage Two. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were thrilled to meet the players. It was a fantastic day and it provided the children with a great opportunity to engage within the sport.”
