Head Coach of the England under-16 men's side, Andreas Kapoulas, commented on the weekend: "The National Team Camp has been established as an annual event over the years and once again it was a great opportunity for all home nation players and staff across age groups to come together in preparation for their respective European Championship challenges.
"It has been a very rewarding learning experience for our under-16s group and has given our players the opportunity to take another step forward in our journey towards Bosnia."
Scotland's under-18 men's coach, Jim Wright, added: "The Scotland under-18 men, both players and management, found the experience rewarding, challenging and inspiring. It was challenging because of the developing awareness of the standard for GB Basketball, and inspiring because we have been given an insight into what can be achieved. The weekend was well organised and I would like to thank all involved."
Across the weekend a number of player workshops were held, including talks on the importance of anti-doping at international tournaments delivered by UK anti-doping trainers Peter Evans and Darren Ford, as well as a workshop focused on mental toughness delivered by Sports Coach UK's Paul Connelly.
There were also a number of workshops for team staff and coaches. Physiotherapist, Paul Fisher led a sports medicine staff session on reducing injury and improved performance in basketball. In addition he delivered a session to players and other staff on the topic, while team managers came together to discuss management issues led by GB under-20 team manager, Mark Lloyd. Paul Connelly hosted another workshop focused on communication from the coaches perspective.
Paul Fisher commented on his workshops: "These sessions are aimed at players gaining a better understanding of the strategies available for reducing injury in basketball. This, together with taking better care of injuries when they do occur, will allow players to reach their full potential and maximise their success."
British Basketball's Performance Pathway Manager, Vladan Dragosavac believes the National Team Camp was a huge success overall: "The Camp was a great opportunity for players and coaches to enjoy basketball. We organised workshops for players, coaches, physiotherapists and Strength and Conditioning coaches, team managers and performance analysts. If we want to be better we need to develop every part of our system. We need to learn and improve ourselves every day and the National Team Camp was great place for that."
