Sport Science Alumnus, Joshua Chubb, Signs with Sheffield Sharks

Joshua Chubb, who completed his A Levels this year, has signed to play professional basketball with the Sheffield Sharks. We welcomed Joshua back to UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park for our Sport Science Showcase where he spoke about his journey, developing from the UTC, to play professional basketball.

Joshua said: “I came to the UTC in September 2017, joining in Year 12, because they offered the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport. High Storrs didn’t offer this course, so I felt like I should take the opportunity, as it was what I was passionate about. I also liked the fact it was assessed on coursework, practical work and exams, which felt better suited to me.”

Joshua has been successful in his basketball career, as he previously played for Yorkshire at County level and the Junior Sharks teams in Sheffield. He currently plays for the professional DBL Sharks team in the city.

He achieved fantastic results in the summer that met the requirements to be able to study at university and was also offered a contract with the Sharks for a year. He trained with them and built a strong relationship with the coach.

Speaking about UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, Joshua said: “I would definitely recommend coming to the UTC, as you’re working on projects that count towards your grades all the time. I travelled an hour everyday to come to the UTC, but it was worth it. I like the fact that the teachers really care about your work and they made sure we did the best we could.”

He added: “In the future I’d like to study Sports Therapy at university and hope to become a Physiotherapist or even a Teacher.”
