Jr.NBA World Championship- Europe Training Camp Day 1: Time to practice!


The components of the Team Europe that are making their training camp in L'Alqueria del Basket ahead of the Jr.NBA World Championship to be held next week in Orlando have started to work with the first two practices at the basketball youth teams facilities of Valencia Basket.


Before the morning practice, the boys and girls of the Team Europe had their official photo shooting with a very special surprise. Players and coaches have had the opportunity to take a souvenir snapshot with the Larry O'Brien Trophy, which will be on display tomorrow at the L'Alqueria del Basket reception. After the photos, the boys have done their practice session on the court Víctor Luengo of L'Alqueria del Basket and the girls (with the three Spanish representatives: Carolina, Carlota and Berta) have worked on the court number 2, the dedicated to Nacho Rodilla. Throughout the morning, the campers have had the company of NBA Ambassador and NBA ring champion Francisco Elson.


After the necessary time for lunch and rest, the members of the Team Europe for the Jr.NBA World Championship have returned in the afternoon to the facilities of L'Alqueria del Basket for the second practice of the day. In the demanding evening sessions, the work of both boys and girls’ teams has been reinforced by the presence of some players from L'Alqueria del Basket, who have been integrated into the practice sessions.
