CEPS will move into camping on Wednesday to continue preparations ahead of the 2013 Africa Senior Club Championship in Liberia.

The Accra-based side have returned to the country after playing two international friendly matches against Togolese side Swallows.

CEPS managed two victories in their neighbouring countries in preparations for the African championship in Liberia’s capital of Monrovia.

The team has passed a clean bill of health with no injury worries for coach Brimah Lawah ahead of their return to the African continent.

Ghanaian super star Bani Dodzi remains on track to make his long-awaited return to the championship since while Daniel Aryee, Hashim Brimah, Patrick Gamali, Suka Muntari, Saddick Frank, Kofi Essilfie and Nii Quartey Kotey are in the frame to line-up for the side.

Coach Lawah has the pleasure of calling up players’ worth of experience as he prepares his team for this year’s African Senior Club Championship.

The African region has two qualification spot for the World Club Championship, meaning CEPS must either win the series or pick silver to book their seat.

Greater Accra chairman of the Basketball Association, Benjamin Baafi, who doubles as an official of CEPS said the squad would face ten days of intensive training in their last camp ahead of the championship, from which the final team will be selected.

“This last camp is all about putting the final touches on our ability to execute at both ends of the game- both offensively and defensively,” he told BASKETBALLghana.com

“We’ve got both the experience and the quality to rise to the challenge and we know we need to work how we anticipate they’re going to play.

“Our team has spent a lot of time entrenching our trademarks and culture throughout our previous camps, and now it’s time to put those CEPS’ values into action.

“In particular, the last camp we held in Accra was tough – both physically and mentally – and this camp will be too.

“But I know these athletes are 100% committed – they’ve shown me that they want to be coached, they’ve been extremely responsive to rigorous training, their effort levels during camp have been tremendous and we’ve been able to move forward in leaps and bounds. I can’t fault them.

He added: “As long as we keep that momentum going and as long as we’re cohesive in our style of play, I have every confidence we’ll take the Championship in Liberia.
