Robert Horry
CASTRIES, St Lucia- Digicel and the National Basketball Association (NBA) announced today October 6, 2016 that seven-time NBA Champion Robert Horry (207-F-70, college: Alabama), 1977 NBA Champion and former NBA head coach Lionel E. Hollins and two-time WNBA All-Star Skylar K. Diggins will coach at the Digicel NBA Jumpstart Elite Camp in the Virgin Islands from October 7-9, 2016.
The Elite Camp will feature the top 63 players - 45 boys and 18 girls - from the Digicel NBA Jumpstart Clinics held in nine Caribbean countries this fall. At the conclusion of the Elite Camp, the NBA and Digicel will choose the top thirteen players - eight boys and five girls - who will have an opportunity to take part in the Digicel Jumpstart Experience in the US later this year.

The Digicel NBA Jumpstart Basketball programme, now in its second year, began August 24, 2016 and took place in Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Bermuda, the [British] Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The clinics, run by NBA assistant coaches and D-League coaches, along with NBA International Basketball Operations staff, brought together hundreds of players and coaches from across the Caribbean. Each clinic featured the top boys and girls born between 1999-2001 as well as coaching clinics for local coaches.

'These boys and girls who have made it to the Elite Camp are not only the best in their countries, they are also the embodiment of hard work, dedication and a good attitude. Congratulations to all them,' said Digicel Group Director of Marketing, Peter Lloyd. 'The players, along with their family and friends, will also be able to relive the memorable moments from the camp, which will be shared on all our social media platforms and on SportsMax.'

'The second year of the Digicel NBA Jumpstart programme has been a resounding success,' said NBA Vice President, Latin America Arnon de'Mello. 'As a leading company in the Caribbean and a strategic NBA partner, Digicel shares our vision of growing basketball at the grassroots level and teaching the value of a healthy, active lifestyle. Congratulations to the boys and girls heading to the British Virgin Islands for this year's Elite Camp.'

Last year, Digicel and the NBA announced a multi-year partnership that will deliver live games and extensive NBA programming to almost 30 Caribbean territories through SportsMax, which is the Official Wireless Partner of the NBA in the region. This partnership also allows Digicel customers to get in on the action through a number of promotions that will be launched across the Caribbean.

The 2016-17 NBA season starts Tuesday, October 25, 2016.
