Newham All Star Sports Academy (NASSA) was set up for the young people in the London Borough of Newham and the surrounding areas. Our coaches have experience in Europe and the USA and are all qualified in their specialised fields. Our sports sessions are open to boys and girls from the ages of eight upwards. Our teams compete at all age levels from 8-18+ in the England Basketball National League structure.
We provide extra-curricular school training clubs, a Saturday Academy, a High Flyers Developmental Programme, a volunteer programme, opportunities to gain coaching qualifications and NVQs, a summer scheme, holiday clubs and outreach work in local parks.
Our goals are to:
build ambitious, successful and responsible young adults
provide a real alternative to engaging in anti-social behaviour.
We achieve both of these by creating awareness and understanding of the opportunities that exist in their lives. NASSA provides consistent motivation to encourage the young people to stay focused and to pursue those opportunities with passion.
