Flyers star Rogers out to inspire the basketball community

Bristol Flyers Community are delighted to announce that fan favourite, Josh Rogers, has joined them as a Community Basketball Coach.

The Bristolian-born forward, who recently committed for a second year with the Flyers, will be delivering interventions in the communities of Bristol to tackle inactivity and inequality.

Born in Bristol, Rogers came through the ranks at the Flyers and graduated from the SGS basketball academy, making his senior debut in September 2011 at the age of 17 in NBL Division one.

He went on to sign a full athletic scholarship with Carson-Newman in NCAA Division two, making 110 appearances during his collegiate career, posting an average of 9.4 points and 6.8 rebounds in his senior year.

He now wants to use his success on the court to inspire thousands of people to pick up the ball and start playing basketball. 


"I have seen how basketball can change lives and inspire people to live active, healthy lives and after returning to the Flyers and seeing the work that the club, Bristol Sport Foundation and the Flyers Community are doing everyday I knew I had to be a part of it," said Rogers.

"When I was growing up playing basketball, I had players who I looked up to, who inspired me to play and now it is my turn to give back to the sport that has given me so much."
