Aspire 2 Achieve and the Northumberland Knightflyers are a relatively new company and sporting club. They run basketball around Northumberland in a number of schools, community centres and disabled forums.

They currently have two basketball teams (senior and junior) who are in the Tyne Met League Division 3 (Senior team) and the CVL League (Juniors), whilst are working towards setting up a team for disabled people which will compete in a number of friendly games.

The teams were set up on September 20th 2009, mere weeks before the start of the new season. While the Senior team has struggled in their first 5 games, the Junior team has won 5 out of 7 games, including a 30 point victory.

Aspire 2 Achieve is a Northumberland based organisation whose prime purpose is to raise the awareness, confidence and productivity of youths in the area via the medium of sport.

All their staff have experience with coaching basketball in Northumberland and other areas in the UK. The head coach Alan Hoyle has over 9 years coaching experience and has received training from the six time World Champions, the Chicago Bulls. The unique experience allows the Knightflyers to offer an unmatched training programme to people of all abilities.
