Former Pupil at Prestigious Basketball Academy

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements, Wider Curriculum

Former pupil Ashley Todd is now attending the Bristol Academy of Sport and playing for the Bristol Flyers Under 18 Team. This is a dream come true for Ashley who is now getting coaching from Andreas Kapoulas, Head Basketball Coach at Bristol Flyers, SGS Academy and Great Britain U20s Assistant Coach. Ashley is immersed in trying to improve his game and learn what it takes to be a professional athlete.

Ashley attended Teanassie Primary School and went to a Basketball event organised by Cash Back for Communities and BasketBall-Scotland when he was in Primary 7. His basketball journey began. He has since represented Scotland at Under-14 level and dreams of being able to play professionally quite soon.

While in Bristol Ahsley is continuing with his studies though. He is taking qualifications in English, Biology and PE at Bristol.
