The 2013 Ghana Basketball and Leadership Camp ended last Saturday in Accra.

Over forty boys and girls took part in the maiden edition of the six-day event at Oyarifa, a suburb of Accra.

The campers went through a vigorous training session which has impacted positively on their understanding of the basic rudiment of the game.

Players were taken through many drills including learning the art of dribbling skills, lay-ups, shooting, pivoting, lined-up drill amongst many others.

American trainer Clifton Zeno Johnson alongside his German colleague Jens Gailing combined with local trainers Brimah Lawah, Mathias Ocloo and Emmanuel Quaye to teach campers the rudiment of the game.

The six-day camp has been revealing with the experience garnered by the campers expected to go a long way to enhancing their scope and better appreciate the game.

It has been an awesome experience which will linger on the minds of the campers. Many have spoken about their delight in the historic training exercise and are already looking forward to another one next year.

“I am really pleased with everybody’s effort during the camp,” said coach Johnson.

“I’m sure now they’ll put some time individually, and a lot of them have understood the basics.

‘These guys are really hungry for basketball and I believe the sky cannot be the limit for them.

“We had a great camp and I am very thrilled with what I have learnt here,” one camper Bright Owusu told

“I believe next year will be bigger and better. I am already looking forward to it.”
