FIBA National Youth Camp is underway in Mozambique

PHOENIX and CONAKRY (Mauritius and Guinea) – Mauritius and Guinea hosted the first two FIBA ​​National Youth Camps last week. Mozambique is the next leg of the newly launched program until Sunday.

For six days, more than 80 Guinean and Mauritian participants – coaches and players – were taught by FIBA ​​and NBA experts on different aspects of the game – psychology, technique and tactics.

In Mauritius, the FIBA ​​National Youth Camp left a positive imprint on the participants.

“We are now better equipped to take on new challenges,” said the coaches, who are now tasked with scouting for new talent.

The Mauritius Basketball Federation (MBBF) has also expressed a desire to have more camps like the one held last week as it looks forward to reactivating its national team. “We have had discussions with Scott Fleming, and we would like to have him here for other training camps,” MBBF President Hedley Han Mui said.

The players also savored the days spent under Fleming’s supervision. Everyone is now looking forward to the next steps. “It was a great moment for us and for the local basketball community as a whole. We now look forward to putting what we learned into practice.”

At the same time, in Guinea, young players and coaches also attended a training camp under the aegis of FIBA.

The two federations are now awaiting the names of the players who have been selected to take part in the regional youth camp later this year.

The 2022 edition of the National Youth Camp is underway in Mozambique (February 15-20), while Uganda is set to host FIBA ​​and NBA representatives next week (February 21-26). Algeria (February 22-27) and Chad (March 1-6) are next on the list.

DR Congo (March 1-6) and Madagascar (March 7-12) have yet to confirm whether they will hold their respective national youth camps.
