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.
