Sub-Junior (U14) Boys & Girls Coaching Camp being held in New Delhi
The best Sub-Junior (under-14) basketball players in India – in both the boys’ and the girls’ divisions – have been invited for a special coaching camp at the Indira Gandhi Stadium in New Delhi from December 12th-30th, 2011. This camp will help prepare the sub-juniors for international exposure matches in the future.
The sub-juniors are the youngest crop of competitive basketball players under the Basketball Federation of India (BFI) and have been picked for this camp from all over the country on the basis of their performance at the 38th Sub-Junior National Basketball Championship in Lucknow in September.
Practice sessions are being held with coaches Kenny Natt and Pete Gaudet for the boys’ and the girls’ respectively. Natt is the head coach of India’s Senior Men’s Basketball Team, while Gaudet holds the corresponding post for India’s Senior Women. Sports Authority of India (SAI) coaches will be assisting Natt and Gaudet, along with Matt Hivner, a special volunteer assistant for the BFI.
The BFI have given an open invitation to all interested basketball coaches to attend the practice sessions if they so desire.
Here is a list of players invited for this camp.
