The Trial/Taster session is free, thereafter, the player must decide to progress to the membership registration steps below.
There are 2 types of LWBC memberships:
a. Training and a Player for National/Local League games

Steps to join the club (you must follow all 5 steps below):
1. All members must Register with Basketball England (BE). All members that participate in National or Local Leagues games must also purchase a PLAYER licence with BE.

c) Please have a copy of the player’s birth certificate or their current valid in-date passport picture page and a photo of the player (shoulders up) saved on the laptop/phone you will be using to complete the registration in the Basketball England Player Registration Portal.
