Champions Camp is a basketball camp for boys and girls between the ages 10 and 18 with tradition since 2011 - this is our 10th anniversary! This summer, we are featuring two American NBA experienced head coaches - Michael Holton of Portland Trail Blazers and Mike Sanders, who most recently served as an assistant coach of Utah Jazz. Skillful active players of various European basketball leagues will participate as our team coaches. You will also have an opportunity to work highly accredited specialists from complementary sport disciplines. The opening ceremony is scheduled for Sunday July 5th at 1 PM in the City Main Gym.
We divide all the players according to their age and skill level into teams of 12. Each of the teams is led through the whole program of the camp by one team coach. Their role is to assist the American coaches during practices, lead their team in Summer League games, be responsible for each kid during down time and to always be there for his or hers players to help.
Each player will spend at least 3 hours on the court at a station of either head coach. Our program also features athletic and agility training, physiotherapy, balance exercises, Champions Camp Challenge and Summer team league. We will analyze the technique of the best world players in our video room, let the Americans to tell us their NBA stories and watch a basketball movie in the cinema. At the end of the week each camper will receive a report summarizing their camp records, evaluating their skills, suggestions for improvement and a signed photo with both Americans.
