BWB Europe 2007 Paris, 6 to 10 August All Camps

PARIS 2007 – The seventh camp to be held in Europe took place in Paris, France from August 6-10 2007. About 50 European players aged 16-18 attended the camp and seven NBA players including Bo Outlaw and Yakhouba Diawara were present to serve as coaches.

Campers were divided into six teams, each coached by at least one NBA player. Teams took part in various drills ran by the NBA players each morning and then competed in a round robin tournament which was held in the afternoons and evenings. Teams were chosen randomly and slept and ate together in order to enhance the camp’s diversity in face of the 24 nationalities represented by the campers.

Off the court, campers attended daily Life-Skills seminars; hour long sessions in which speakers from organisations such as UNICEF addressed topics ranging from the importance of leadership to HIV/AIDS awareness and education.
The NBA players also participated in the BWB community outreach programs Legacy Project and NBA Cares. Highlights included the inauguration of an NBA Cares Community Center and a product donation of toys, clothing, toiletries, and other such necessities to various non-governmental organisations.
