1The 2015 Ghana Basketball and Leadership Camp tipped off in glorious sunshine in Accra with campers getting of a feel what to expect in a grueling eight-day period.

The team started off with light jogging which sparked the day with interim physical instructor Chief Boadu-Mensah taking the kids through the exercise as early as 5am. Substantive physical trainer Alfred Davis took the over the session with a rigorous session for the campers.

Over 40 campers have converged at the Pentecost University College in Ghana’s capital, Accra where they are undergoing an intensive rudiment to learn the basics of the game.

Liberian-born American trainer Moses Harris, who is headlining this year’s camping exercise, started off his work with ball handling skill, drills and shooting. Campers were housed into two groups based on their positions and the level of their basketball IQ.

Moses Harris dealt with the little experienced players while local trainer Alfred Davis worked out with the green horns.

There were two sessions – morning and afternoon with each of the sessions lasting for more than two hours.

After the first session coach Alfred Davis said: You guys are here for a reason,” said David. “But to take it to the next level you have to work hard. Learn from all of the great coaches here and make the most of this wonderful opportunity.”

The Ghana Basketball and Leadership Camp provide a unique opportunity for the campers to learn directly from seasoned coaches and to attempt to catch the eye of scouts for the European market.
