PLAYERS from as many as 20 countries participated in the Qatar Basketball Federation’s (QBF) Under-15 international camp that concluded at the QBF Indoor Hall last week.
The four-day camp, held under the guidance of FIBA expert Robert Tyler, involved basic drills and skills programme besides coaches’ clinics.
“It was a great opportunity for youngsters to learn in an interactive session. This was the second camp after the 3×3 training programme in September. Our goal was to make sure each player developed and improved his individual skills,” Tyler told Doha Stadium Plus.
Tyler praised the QBF’s efforts in developing the sport in the region.
“Such camps are always a boon for young players. Some nations may not have these kind of facilities. I thank Sheikh Saoud and the QBF for the support. The sport will continue to grow and develop under his leadership,” he said.
Asked about the goal of such camps, Tyler said, “Participation and friendship were the main focal points because it had players from different countries. You can’t make a basketball player in one week. Our job is to make them better and raise their levels.”
