Basketballghana.com can confirm the second edition of the SEED Academy-Ghana Basketball Camp has been postponed due to the rising number of active cases of COVID 19.
The camp was scheduled to be held on August 21 and August 22 with former NBA player and Scout Pops Mensah-Bonsu headlining the event.
However, the rising cases of the COVID 19 Delta variant infections in the West African nation has made it difficult to host the camp in Ghana’s capital, Accra for the second time. The 2020 edition was held virtually due to the COVID 19 pandemic.
Young players from various basketball programs in Accra and beyond were expected to participate in the two day event but those plans have been put on hold with organizers doing so “to give us time to observe the COVID numbers”.
Mensah-Bonsu had a nine professional playing career with stints in the NBA for Dallas Mavericks and Toronto Raptors and in Europe. He served as the first General Manager of Capital City Go-Go; Washington Wizards affiliate team in the NBA Gatorade League.
As at the time of writing, Ghana had 112,000 reported cases of infections (a tally up by 1,146) with 945 deaths (a tally up by 15).
