What our students say

Playing for NESA helped me develop to the level I am currently at, competing with professional players, via a tough regime of daily basketball and physical training, individual training sessions, team training sessions and games during which I put individual skills into practice. It is my view that there are no other colleges or schools in the region where you would have access to this expertise at such a level.
