Over 100 young basketball players are expected to take part in the second edition of the 2014 Ghana Basketball and Leadership Camp in Cape Coast next month.
Adisadel College will play host to the seven-day exercise which has already generated massive interest among young basketball players in the West African country.
Interested basketball players between the ages of 10-19 are expected to camp for a week for an exciting and unique basketball experience that will benefit them immensely towards their growth and development.
The one-week camping exercise for boys and girls, expected to take place between August 17-24, will provide the platform for these players to learn the fundamentals of the game including shooting, dribbling, rebounding, screening, offense, defense and ball handling amongst other skills.
This will undoubtedly enhance their understanding and appreciation of the game while equipping them with some essential life skills.
