Girls Programme

Myerscough College Basketball Academy has set its sights on building a proud tradition of girls basketball under the direction of Great Britain Olympian Julie Page.


The Academy fields teams in two leagues; the Women's Elite Academy Basketball League (WEABL) and Under-18 Northern Premier League. Girls also have the opportunity to earn experience playing for the Lancashire Spinners Women's team in Basketball England's National League 1.

During 2016-17, the programme's maiden year, our girls continued the longstanding success the Academy has had over its first four years and finished second in the North Conference. Two players were named to the WEABL All-Conference First Team and further honours were extended as Myerscough College's Milly Knowles was named as Defensive Player of the Year.

The girls programme, which is entering its second year, enjoys regular use of the state-of-the-art facilities at Myerscough's purpose built High Performance Sport Centre. The centre houses our Strength and Conditioning suite and regulation basketball court.
