Facilities

Myerscough Basketball Academy is housed in the £3.2 million state-of-the-art Pure Leisure High Performance Centre for Sport that opened on  the Myerscough College campus in 2016.

The Academy moved to the High Performance Centre for Sport (HPC) in 2016 after previously being based at the adjacent Sports Centre, which was built in the 1990s.

The build came as part of a series of new developments, as well as redevelopments across the College's campus. Work comprised of the demolition and removal of an existing Sportsturf centre and workshop, resulting in the state-of-the-art and purpose-built facility complete with a Strength & Conditioning suite and offices.

Myerscough student-athletes have regular access to the HPC, which has specialist equipment tailor-made to suit the physical demands of a basketball player, whilst coaches have been given the best facilities to help aid in player development.

The Strength and Conditioning Suite is fitted with a trio of Absolute Performance squat racks and fitness equipment, Bison™ Olympic Lifting Plates and York free weights.

The High Performance Centre has hosted the EABL and WEABL 3x3 National Regionals, as well as Basketball England training camps for both the Under-15 Boys and Girls teams, and is equipped for netball and indoor football.
