The BDA Belgrade Summer Basketball Camp will take place at Kovilovo Sports Resort, which is located on the outskirts of  Belgrade, Serbia.  This excellent sports venue is tailor made for staging high-end sports camps and is a regional partner of BDA International.

Kovilovo Sports Resort provides the best conditions for the preparation of professional athletes in Serbia, as proven by the successful hosting of hundreds of teams from Serbia and Europe over the years, including professional  league basketball teams and Serbian national teams for both men’s and women’s categories.

The facilities teams have at their disposal while at the centre include a fully equipped sports hall with two full basketball courts with parquet wooden flooring, regulated to FIBA standards.  In addition the centre has two outdoor basketball courts, swimming pool, sauna, a fully equipped weights room, physio facilities and multiple classrooms with projectors for game film analysis sessions.

Kovilovo Sports Resort is one of the few complexes that provide top level sports infrastructure alongside accommodation of the highest class.

Luxurious rooms in opulent surroundings, with ‘all you can eat’ full-board support throughout the duration of your stay.  Food is carefully prepared nutritionally to support elite athletes dietary needs with all considerations catered for.

Kovilovo is also surrounded by 26 hectares of green space and accessed via gated security, providing a safe and secure environment for athletes to focus on their training without unnecessary distractions.

This unique sports facility is one of the best in the Balkan region and features:

Accommodation for all campers (and travelling parents, subject to availability) is on-site, offering the rare opportunity of having everything you could possibly need, housed all in the same place.  The extensive sports facilities and hotel are all located on the same gated grounds, providing the highest levels of convenience and quality.

Kovilovo Sports Resort was originally designed for the Serbian International sports teams, to a high-standard   finish, ensuring the architecture, rooms and surroundings provide all guests with a high level of comfort throughout their stay.

This camp is provided ‘full-board’ which includes 3 full meals per day with an ‘all you can eat’ healthy buffet of hot food, featuring various roasted meats (chicken, beef, fish etc), a variety of vegetables, salads, breads, soups, rice, pasta etc.  For breakfast, cooked or continental options are available for all guests, alongside juices, tea, coffee, filtered water and an array of fruits, yogurts and pastries.  Food is carefully prepared on site in a professional kitchen and nutritionally designed to support athletes dietary needs with all considerations catered for.

Kovilovo is also surrounded by 26 hectares of green space and accessed via gated security, providing a safe and secure environment for athletes to focus on their training without unnecessary distractions.

All rooms are fitted with comfortable beds, fresh linen, air-conditioning, flat-screen TV, phone and desk.  En-suite private bathrooms with each room provide a shower, WC,  toiletries and a hair-dryer.

Players and parents alike will also greatly appreciate the outstanding outdoor swimming pool which provides a stylish swimming or ‘cool down’ area to relax, socialise and enjoy non-training time during the summer sun.



Our camp training schedule for each player is split into two training sessions per day – with one in the morning and one in the late afternoon.

After the first training session in the morning, time is reserved for players education.  We believe that psychological preparation for games is very important for every players overall development so they can perform at their best in competition.  We incorporate appropriate lessons around this invaluable topic after our morning training sessions.

We also teach players about exercises that help their basketball development as well as how to lead a healthy lifestyle with good eating habits that support their basketball goals.

BDA Camps work closely with the European Institute of Sports and feature many of their leading lecturers as our guest speakers.

After lunch and obligatory rest, we go for our second training session of the day. Evenings are reserved for leisure time.  We offer a number of Belgrade City tours and cultural excursions for players, parents and coaches.

All the coaches working with BDA Camps are highly-skilled, thoroughly trained and educated FIBA Licensed coaches.  As the entire programme is run by Golden State Warriors Assistant Coach Dejan Milojevic, our camp coaching staff has been hand-picked primarily from his current or former assistants.

Coach Milojević is well-known across NBA circles as the coach who developed NBA 2-time MVP and perennial All-Star Nikola Jokić, of the Denver Nuggets.  Born and raised in Belgrade, Coach Milojević has also coached and developed 6 other NBA players which include Boban Marjanovic (Dallas Mavericks), Ivica Zubac (LA Clippers), Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot (Brooklyn Nets), Goga Bitadze (Indiana Pacers), Vlatko Čančar (Denver Nuggets)and Adam Mokoka (Chicago Bulls) in addition to many other players who have gone on to play successfully in the Euroleague.



Golden State Warriors Assistant Coach Dejan Milojevic, co-owner of BDA International, is extremely well-connected and respected throughout the NBA and the highest levels of Serbian basketball.  Each summer, players look forward to coming out and supporting BDA camps – as seen last summer at camp where the players from London were treated with a special guest visit from NBA and Euroleague star Nemanja Bjelica.

Bjelica spent time with the young players from London answering any and all questions they had in an extended Q&A, bringing them unrivalled access and to a NBA World Champion.

With a rich network of NBA and Serbian national talent always around the charismatic BDA coach, campers should always be ready to expect the unexpected at camp, with prestigious special guests dropping by to say ‘Hi’ and answer questions directly from the mouths of NBA and Euroleague stars.





BDA’s founding partner and Director Of Coaching, Dejan Milojević, is the current Golden State Warriors assistant coach and former coach of NBA 2xMVP Nicola Jokic.  Working with the reigning NBA Champions on a daily basis, coach Milojević has unique insights into what it takes to win at the highest level, both as a player and a team.  BDA campers get the opportunity to Q&A with the legendary coach live at BDA Belgrade Camp 2023 and wherever possible, have this extended to NBA players too, subject to availability.
