BWB Asia 2010 Singapore, 28 June to 1 July All Camps

The fifth edition of BWB Asia took place in the city-state of Singapore from June 28th to July 1st 2010. The camp featured 44 of Asia’s top 15-19 year olds, along with nine players and coaching staff from the NBA who served as coach.

The camp was held at the Singapore American School, where the anticipated opening press conference was followed by camper scrimmages and an NBA Cares Special Olympics clinic. The clinic itself was a highlight for the BWB program as it was the first one to see more than 70 ‘special athletes’ commute from a range of countries to participate. Special Olympic clinics are typically designed solely for local Special Olympics athletes.BWB Singapore also featured community outreach projects with NBA players visiting a local Jamiyah orphanage as well as hosting an NBA Fit Clinic in conjunction with the YMCA. The NBA Fit Clinic is designed to promote healthy-living for young people.

Basketball-wise, camp participants were divided into 4 teams at the BWB "Draft" where NBA players and coaches selected teams based on individual players skill level. From there on in campers attended morning training sessions focusing on individual skills and basic fundamentals. Following the morning trainings, campers took part in Life-Skills seminars where speakers discussed topics such as leadership skills and qualities, HIV/AIDS awareness, and leading a healthy lifestyle. Campers then hit the courts in the afternoon to play in the camp mini-tournament which was conquered by Taj Gibson and Don Newman’s Bulls.
The final day of camp featured the camp all-star game, as well as various skill-based mini-competitions. Ying-Chun Chen from Chinese Taipei received the Nike Camp MVP Award, while Mario Emmanuel Bonleon of the Philippines was victor of the StarHub Shooting Stars 3-point competition
