The Winter Youth Camp by Elite Basketball Program will take place in Escola Amélia Rey Colaço (Linda-a-Velha) between the 18th June and 13th July (4 weeks), directed to athletes born between 2002 and 2008.
Our main concern is still the quality of practice and we will continue to bet strongly on the individualization of the training plans. Each athlete will be part of a group (up until 7 athletes) with similar training necessities where each aspect of the game will be specified specifically for each group.
We want to develop all the areas of players game, whether they happen to be athletic-specific skills, basketball skills or even tactical decision-making. The individualization of practice comes with a cost, which is a 40 slots-only capacity. Our success is not measured by the number of athletes that attend the camp but the REAL evolution of each athlete.
This basketball camp it’s neither a traditional summer camp, or a specific-skill camp, the approach on this camp is about assessing each athletes needs and addressing them as efficiently as possible. A typical day will start at 9h30m (the athletes can arrive as soon as 9h) and end at 17h (the athletes can stay until 17h30m), where we offer lunch between the morning and afternoon sessions. Each player will receive a t-shirt.
All our coaches have an appropriate academic background and also a rich curriculum in basketball. Every week we will receive athletes that work with us in the summer to talk about their experience and respond to all the questions the athletes might ask, such as Carlos Andrade (SLB – LPB), Arnette Hallman (UD Oliveirense – LPB), Márcia Costa (GDESSA - Liga Feminina), Joana Ramos (SLB – Liga Feminina), Francisco Amiel (Colgate University – NCAA 1) between others.
OAthletes born in 2001 and 2002 could earn an invitation to work side-to-side with these experienced athletes if they show commitment to training.
From Monday to Friday from 9am until 5.30pm
