Digicel to host NBA camp

Hands on: Troy Justice, from the NBA, will be putting players through their paces

Digicel and the National Basketball Association will hold a basketball clinic in Bermuda next month.

The Digicel NBA Jumpstart Basketball Clinic will be run by NBA International Basketball Operations staff and focus on player development, and will be held between September 9 to 11.

The Island’s top 40 players aged 16 and under will be invited to the two-day camp, with a one-day clinic for local coaches.

As with Digicel’s successful football programme, the Digicel Kickstart Clinics, the best athletes in each country will be selected for the intensive elite-camp programme, which will take place in Trinidad and Tobago from September 26 to 28.

The top eight players from the elite camp will have the opportunity to attend an NBA game in the United States.

Digicel and the NBA will run clinics all over the Caribbean, with the first one beginning this week in the British Virgin Islands.

The elite camp and camper trip to the US to attend an NBA game will be shared with Digicel customers online, digitally and will be broadcast on Digicel SportsMax.

In March, Digicel and the NBA announced a multiyear partnership that will deliver live games and extensive NBA programming to more than 30 Caribbean territories through Digicel SportsMax.
