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.

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.
