After living overseas in Kuwait for many years, Dilan was worried about how he would adjust to life back in the UK. He studied at a different college before transferring to Calderdale College where he joined our Basketball Academy, training and playing regularly for the Bradford Dragons.
Dilan says: “The Academy and College have helped me a lot. I was previously at a different college which only allowed me to focus on basketball and this meant my grades weren’t good.
“Being at Calderdale College helps to keep me in a routine with lessons and training. I feel like I’m constantly improving both in basketball and in lessons.”
Dilan is now close to completing his Level 4 HNC qualification in Sport, and he was a driving force in the Bradford Dragons Academy team who were crowned winners of their division in April!\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ _bp_base=”0_2″ type=”1/2″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 20px;”][cs_element_image _id=”11″ ][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_inset=”0px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_inset=”0px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ _bp_base=”0_2″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” _bp_base=”0_2″ style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ _bp_base=”0_2″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_element_text _id=”15″ ][cs_content_seo]Dilan adds: “The Academy team has grown a lot and we continue push each other to be better.
“College has really helped me build up my self-confidence and social skills after moving back to the UK. Before I was at a time where I was down on myself a lot but the more I kept coming to college the more I felt better about being me.”
