Future Youth Committee

Basketball England's Future Youth Committee (FYC) is a youth-led initiative designed to better connect us with the young people who will shape our game's future. The FYC allows young people a meaningful opportunity to represent their basketball communities, develop themselves and most importantly it gives them a voice.
