Dear parents, dear campers,

For the ninth time in a row, we will organize Champions Camp for you at the beginning of this summer - the only basketball camp in the Czech Republic led by American coaches with NBA experience. Traditionally, you will also be able to choose to attend the Champions Shooting Academy tailored to improve your shooting skills, or Champions Camp Extra where you will dig deeper into your individual player skills. 

One of our founding principles and core values is improvement. This year, we are working hard towards increasing the number of our international participants, improving the food and bringing in experts in valuable activities for basketball players. You can still look forward to more that 3 hours a day of basketball under the leadership of Michael Holton or Mike Sanders, exciting games of the Summer League or testing your skills in the Champions Camp Challenge.

If you want to get better and want to work on your skills over the summer, we believe that Champions Camp is the right choice for you. You can find more information and photos from previous years on our Facebook.

We are looking forward to seeing you in summer in Kralupy,

Your Champions Camp Team    

Our philosophy and founding priciples


In everything we do, we keep people as a center of our attention and main focus of our work. Our actions are pointed towards creating an environment that everybody can benefit from – the participants, the employees and the public.

RESPECT and fairness

For the elder, the peers and the youth. For others and ourselves. For those who teach and those who are being taught. We treat everyone fairly and with dignity.


We are always striving for the best. Because if we do everything we can possibly do, there can’t be any regrets.


We understand and master the basics before moving onto the advanced. We keep them live and foster them every day.


It is the key to the world and an asset that can’t be taken away from anyone who has it. We create an environment where people can learn.


Everything can be improved. We are constantly trying to make ourselves and our work better. Stagnation is a way to destruction.


Anybody can come. We are all from different places, environments and cultures. We have a lot in common and see our differences as an opportunity.


We keep our word.
