Countdown to Digicel NBA Jumpstart Camps

Digicel and the National Basketball Association (NBA) announced that the Digicel NBA Jumpstart Basketball Camps will return to the Caribbean for the third consecutive year, with events taking place August 6th-8th in Trinidad and Tobago, and August 10th-12th in Jamaica.

NBA player Raul Neto of the Utah Jazz (Brazil) and Minnesota Timberwolves’ Assistant Coach, Ed Pinckney, will make appearances and be on hand to provide instructions at the camps, which will bring together more than 120 of the top boys and girls basketball players between the ages of 15-17 years old.

Each market will feature three-day camps run by the NBA International Basketball Operations staff, with boys and girls receiving instruction on life skills, individual player development, 5-on-5 games, and more from NBA talent and top Caribbean coaches.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for the kids. What youngster who is serious about basketball wouldn’t want to meet and learn from the people at the highest level,” said Digicel’s Head of Sponsorships Ben Bradley. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with the NBA once again to deliver this unique experience to these kids - experience that will ultimately help develop them and preserve basketball in the region for years to come,”

“Digicel NBA Jumpstart Basketball Camps have been a big success over the last two years thanks to the tremendous efforts of our partner Digicel and our passionate fans across the Caribbean,” said NBA Latin America Vice President & Managing Director Arnon de Mello. “This program embodies the NBA’s commitment to growing basketball while teaching the values of the game, including teamwork, respect and leadership.”

The Digicel NBA Jumpstart Basketball Camps will be available to view across Digicel’s social platforms and on SportsMax.

In March 2015, Digicel and the NBA announced a multiyear partnership that delivers live games and extensive NBA programming to more than 30 Caribbean territories through SportsMax – making Digicel the Official Wireless Partner of the NBA in the region.
