The Jam Combine
A format in which all participants will go through various physical and technical tests (strength, speed, rebound, shooting, ball handling) modeled on the National Basketball Association (NBA) in America. The aim is to get an idea of the level of newcomers, and the regular participants to adjust the clock and compare their progress with the previous camp. Each test will carry points that will accumulate, and at the end of the week someone will win the The Jam Combine Cup.
Fundamentals first approach to basketball
Every morning the trainings will be focused on the development of the fundamentals techniques in basketball in defense and offense. Participants will go through various stations to improve ball handling, shooting, passing, defense and offense and more.
