Mark Clark announced as Storm’s new head coach


Hemel Storm are delighted to officially announce British Basketball veteran Mark Clark as their head coach for the 2023/24 season.

Mark is a well-known face in British basketball, with high levels of experience in both the men and women's areas of the sport, as well as being a key figure behind the scenes as a Basketball England and British Basketball Federation board member, former BE interim CEO and Director of Performance for the British Basketball league and British Basketball Federation.

Mark has a wealth of experience coaching various National Teams in a career boasting spells at Essex Leopards and highly-regarded basketball academy Barking Abbey, among others. Most recently, Clark had great success coaching London Lions Women, where he excelled to pick up 7 trophies and coached the side to back to back EuroCup Women playoff appearances before he changed position in the organisation, to take up a Senior Advisor role; a role he will continue to perform while at the Storm.

Mark will be able to bring his abundance of basketball knowledge and experience to the team and will no doubt relish the opportunity to work with the talented roster assembling for the upcoming year, with ambitions of another highly successful campaign.

We can also confirm Mark’s coaching team, with Michael Darlow and Tom Fredericks returning to join him on the bench. The pair were a key part in the squad’s on court success last year and will be keen to continue on from their good work this upcoming year.
