Basketball England recruiting young leaders for new 3x3 project

Basketball England is seeking 10 young leaders for a new project designed to grow 3x3 basketball in the country.

The project aims to provide young people with the skills and experience to become social entrepreneurs and role models by empowering and equipping them to share their passion with their peers and have a direct impact on youth participation.
