For the 2018/2019 Season, LBC will be running teams in NBL Division 2, U18 North West, U16 North West and U14 North West.
We are also working together with Sefton Stars Basketball Club to develop basketball and co-operating particularly on an NBL Division 4 team (Liverpool Stars) and on U18 teams - although LBC & Sefton Stars will each be running an U18 team. All teams will be playing their Home games at our Home court, Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College.
In August 2018, all teams will be training/scrimmaging at the Sports College, as the Tennis & Community Centre is closed for maintenance.
We will have some pre-season friendlies, the U18 Anthony Walker Tournament and the Summer Tournament Finals in September.
Our Facebook page will provide details of of proposed activities.
We believe that until Basketball is recognised in the UK as a spectator attraction as well as a participatory sport, facilities will continue to be provided without any consideration being given to spectator accommodation and welfare. Our Home Court has spectator accommodation and we have invested to enhance it and make spectating an attractive experience.
We therefore encourage you to come and support LBC teams - not just the NBL Division 2 team, but the younger age-group teams as well. All the players appreciate spectator support, the more and louder the spectators the better.
There is a spectator entrance charge for games involving the NBL Division 2 team, but there is no spectator entrance charge for other games
Home games involving the NBL Division 2 team (and, when possible, the NBL Division 4 and U18 teams) will be streamed live on our You Tube channel under the Liverpool Basketball Live title.
Live-streams of current season NBL Division 2 games will be available for catch-up viewing until the Monday evening after the game has been played. They will then be deleted from our You Tube channel.
Live-streams of the Division 4 and U18 games will be re-named & probably edited, but will remain available for viewing.
The Liverpool Basketball You Tube channel also holds a number of videos from past seasons which are available for viewing, additional ones being added on an irregular basis.
If you want to do more than just spectate, we are always on the lookout for ambitious Players, for Team and Assistant Coaches, for Game & Table Officials, for volunteers to help with the set-up and running of Home games, team management, the taking and processing of photos & videos, the taking, recording and publishing of game statistics.

If you run a company or organisation, there are a number of ways in which you could promote your products/services in association with LBC, whilst supporting the Club’s activities.
