ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - At around twelve noon today, Sunday September 4, 2016, five boys and two girls will be experiencing the elation of knowing they have been selected to attend the Digicel/NBA Elite Training Camp to be held here in October.
Almost 40 boys and 20 girls began the odyssey of gaining the right to be amongst the best young prospects for basketball in the Territory on Friday September 2, 2016, under the watchful gaze of Senior Director-Basketball Operations International at NBA Troy Justice and Digicel Basketball Ambassador, Jason A. Edwin, as well as other local coaches.

The first day had opened all the participants' eyes to the expected levels of performance and the strict pillars of discipline, team work, skill and coachability required to make it to the next level.

The warm ups each day have drained the fitness, but not the spirit of all the attendees, as the tests on their basic ball handling and shooting skills were embraced by all.

'Shoot for the moon'

'When it comes to basketball, you need to be focused, locked in and relaxed, not angry, not overly serious,' extolled Justice. 'When you wake up you have two choices, one [to] be in the frame of mind to do nothing, the other to be ready to be productive, make something happen and it's your choice.'

Justice further challenged the payers to succeed and look to the stars, shooting for the moon and go for it.

'If you want to play for the WNBA, go for it, if you want to make the NBA, then go for it.'

Day two focused on NBA combined style fitness drills, including vertical take-off ability, three quarter court speed, dribbling coordination, agility and more shooting from around the paint as well as game play and passing awareness to make 'your team mates better players.'

Today's final session will begin with more team games and then culminate with the awards presentation and the announcement of those lucky seven who will go forward to the Elite Camp.
