BWB Europe 2012 Moscow, 13 to 16 September All Camps

MOSCOW 2012 – Basketball without Borders Europe took place between 13 and 16 September 2012 in Moscow, Russia for the very first time in the history of the programme. Forty-two players from 19 countries across Europe attended the camp, which was held at the Sport Complex “Igrovoy” Gym. NBA legend Andrei Kirilenko was joined by other NBA players like Timofey Mozgov, Alexey Shved, Marshon Brooks or Danny Green as well as former NBA/FIBA players (Sarunas Marciulonis, Dmitri Domani…) in serving as the coaches.Campers were divided into four teams and took part in daily clinics run by NBA coaches and which focused on basic fundamental drills. In the afternoons and evenings, the teams – each led by an NBA coach – competed in a tournament that spanned over the course of the four days. An All-Star Game was held on the final day, followed by an award ceremony and then a closing dinner for the camp’s participants. Off the court, players participated every day in a programme known as “Life-Skills Seminars” which serves to educate players on subjects such as the importance of leadership, teamwork, education, health, and sportsmanship. BWB also continued its community outreach programmes through the NBA Cares initiative and by hosting a Special Olympics Clinic, two very important elements of the camp.
