The Essex Rebels is a big family formed of numerous teams from men’s, women’s and multiple junior teams.
Under 18’s men.
This is the pinnacle of the clubs pathway, and one of the most exciting junior teams, along with being the longest running junior team that has had a huge amount of success over the years. Most recently in their 2018/19 campaign they won the east region conference for the first time ever, earning the club a promotion to the premier league of U18’s basketball.
Competing in 2019/20 season in the premier league did not disappoint, and the team proved why they belong at the highest level of junior national league competition.
Coach Ellis helped guide this team to a remarkable 7 wins and 10 losses finishing up the season in 7th place.
We are all excited to see this team in action!Contact Us Meet The Coach
Under 16 boys 1st team.
This age group and team, led by coach Ryan Maiden, is one of the clubs longest running teams. It has served as a platform for a number of highly successful junior national league players that have had the opportunity to not only represent the east region, but who have also represented their country. The U16’s have had great success by way of results over the years and continue to be one of the clubs shining lights in the east region.Contact Us Meet The Coach
Under 16 boys 2nd team.
The under 16’s second team was set up in 2019 due to the large amount of interest we had received during the time of trials for this age group. Because of the numbers and the talent at this age, we felt it would be appropriate to create a second team that would allow players to compete and continue to develop within the club pathway.
Despite the challenges of never having played organised basketball, this group of players, in their very first season, committed and dedicated themselves to improving individually and collectively. After a number of heavy defeats, the boys eventually went on to win their first ever game! – The Essex Rebels family are incredibly proud of their achievement, but more importantly their persistence in never giving up!Contact Us Meet The Coach
Under 16 girls.
The under 16 girls team are about to enter their first ever season of national league basketball. Popularity in the women’s game has increased incredibly due to the success of the Essex Rebels senior women’s team who have been competing in the WBBL for the last two seasons, serving as great role models and ambassadors for female sport. We are very proud to be providing a platform for these young players and hope that we can continue to build and develop a pathway.
Under 14 boys.
The under 14’s team was set up in 2018 under the old banner of Colchester Basketball Club. This team was created due to the enormous amount of participation we saw through our community program at that time, and felt it would help us create a stronger pathway.
The first half of their very first season was challenging, but, they soon found their rhythm and eventually went on to win 6 games, with one of the players being selected into the east region Aspire program. In their second season they only lost 4 games and went on to finish 2 and in the league standings!Contact Us Meet The Coach
