The third Telemach Basketball Camp is set to take place from June 30 to July 6 at the central-Bosnian mountain of Bjelasnica near Sarajevo, with Bosnian-born NBA Brooklyn Nets' player Dzanan Musa as its main star attraction.
The project aims to support young athletes, help them improve their athletic skills and prove that one's effort can lead to success.
Musa noted that events like these are essential for children who want to play basketball professionally.
“This is the right path for children who want to make their first step towards playing basketball professionally. They will have the opportunity to spend several days as professional athletes and see what professional training is like, and they won't be disappointed,” he said.
Telemach company representatives said they are glad this sports event turned into an international event.
“When we first heard about this project, three years ago, we expected it would become what it is right now – an international basketball camp gathering not only children from across the country, but also from other European countries,” Kenan Djonko from the Telemach company said.
The event is said to host Bosnian national team players as well as other eminent individuals from the world of basketball. Telemach will also award two lucky winners with free participation in the camp.
