Squad Training Sessions

Force squads


Our U16 squad, coached by Samuel Cricelli,  is entering the Sussex League this year (2018-19 season) and we wish them every success. The squad meets on Tuesdays from 7pm-9pm at Seaford Head Sports Hall.

These sessions are invite only but we are always looking for new players who show a great attitude and commitment. If you are interested in playing for Force in the Sussex League please contact us.

We continue to build our U14, U12 and now U10 squads, and our aim is to make these sessions fun and productive, helping all of our players make the most of their ability. We will organise friendlies and tournaments to make sure all players get the chance to compete.

About Force Basketball

Basketball is a great game, fantastic for fitness, fun for all abilities and easy to start at any age.

Coaches Miguel Tello and Matt Horner set up Force Basketball in 2017, aiming to give the Seahaven and Lewes a community club to be proud of. Coach Miguel has worked with thousands of Sussex youngsters in the past six years, developing programmes for all ages with Active Sussex and Basketball England. Ex England International Samuel Cricelli joined the Force in April. Samuel is a qualified coach and referee and will be playing a key role within the Club. We are also lucky to have Coach Samuel Martinez Blasco on our coaching team, and Coach Alfie Preece who is an outstanding player and also a Level 1 Coach.

Force Basketball offers a safe environment with an emphasis on enjoyment and positivity, developing basketball skills and a team culture throughout the club. As soon as the squads are ready, we will be competing in the Sussex leagues in the 2018/19 season. We will be getting ready with regular weekly coaching sessions, and friendlies with clubs in the Sussex area.

All our sessions are led by a coach with at least a Level 2 Basketball England coaching qualification and who has a current, clean DBS check. We will develop leadership and coaching pathways for young people who would like to explore this route.

  • My son absolutely loves playing basketball thanks to all the support from the coaches. It’s so good to see him enjoying a sport, learning the technique, away from a screen and making new friends. In his words, which coming from an 11 year old boy means a lot, he enjoys coming along on a Saturday morning more than playing on his computer game!! So from this mum…. Thank you Seahaven Force.

  • We are so glad that we found you guys! My 13 and 7 year old both enjoyed your events at Hove beach and also Brighton Marina. Jude (13) has particularly enjoyed attending your sessions in Seaford and Newhaven over the summer holidays and is really looking forward to seeing you all again during the holidays.
    I cannot thank you all enough for providing a fun and safe environment for kids to enjoy basketball.

    Good job guys!!
