The camp brings together the home nation junior national teams to help them collectively prepare for the European Championships. The camp also forms part of the T16 strategy and looks to establish and build a culture for future Great Britain senior teams.
This year the camp has been extended to three days after the success of the past two years. In 2011, Wales won the Division C Under 18 European Championships for the first time and the England Under 16 side won promotion to Division A.
Head of Performance for British Basketball, Warwick Cann commented: "The National Training Camp is now an important part of our long term preparation of senior GB players. It is also fantastic preparation for the home nations ahead of the European Championships as we have seen previously with the results achieved."
Activities during camp include team building, competitive games and anti-doping advice. A highlight of the weekend will be a presentation from leading sport psychologist, Bill Beswick. He specialises in the achievement of high-level team performance and his background includes being Head Coach of the England Basketball team that won Gold at the 1982 Commonwealth Championships.
The weekend will also see the Standard Life GB under 20 men play a two-game series with Slovak Republic which all players at the National Training Camp will have the opportunity to watch. Friday's game tips off at 19:30 while Saturday's game tips at 20:00 both at the WISE Filton Academy.
