The third edition of Lisbon Youth Camp by Elite Basketball Program will take place in Escola Amélia Rey Colaço (Linda-a-Velha) between the 24th June and 26th July (5 weeks), directed to athletes born between 2003 and 2009.
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 development of each athlete.
This basketball camp is neither a traditional summer camp, or a specific-skills camp. The approach here is about assessing each athlete needs and addressing them as efficiently as possible. A typical day will start at 9.30 am (the athletes can arrive as soon as 9.00 a,) and end at 5.00 pm (the athletes can stay until 5.30 pm), 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 2003 and 2004 could earn an invitation to work side-to-side with these experienced athletes if they show commitment to training.
At this year's edition we will OFFER an exclusive reversible Elite Basketball Program Jersey Set (this offer is limited to the first 50 sign ups).
