The camp’s vision The camp’s vision is to work with young, promising basketball players individually, in a way adapted to each player. We really want to focus on each participant and help them achieve expected results. Our goal is to develop not only physical readiness but also mental maturity of young sportsmen. The key of developing one’s personality lies in good knowledge of oneself and positive channeling of their energy towards the set goals. These are the reasons why we decided to invite a wide range of experts in various areas: nutrition, mental readiness, physical therapy and physical readiness. A team of basketball trainers will also be joining us. Due to a wholesome approach, we believe that players will achieve top results and will develop into prominent basketball players. Professional sport is characterized by fierce competition. Therefore, sport is becoming more and more complex, and it is our goal to help everyone achieve top results with dedication and professional work. In the following 5 years we wish to achieve reputation as the carriers of success and above average results.

Our way to success Our vision is to work with young, promising players and lead them to their set goals. In order to achieve our mission, we need a good program, experts, proper infrastructure and, last but not least, the sponsors who would believe in our vision. We have obtained all of the criteria mentioned above: we believe in our program, we are collaborating with a group of experts and the proper infrastructure will help us realize our camp’s vision and goals to the fullest. The New Era Basketball Camp will be carried out in Kranj, the town of France Prešeren. Kranj is also known for its excellent basketball players and other top athletes, such as Marko Milič, Jaka Blažič, Sašo Ožbolt, Emir Preldžič, Gregor Fučka, Sara Isakovič, etc. Therefore, we are immensely pleased to have chosen Kranj, where the whole infrastructure is at our disposal: a multi-purpose hall for basketball practice (courts, changing rooms, showers), gym, massage rooms, conference and practice analysis rooms. A student dormitory is nearby, where players will be accommodated and will be offered 5 to 7 meals a day. In addition, players will have various animation programs at their disposal. The complex is located in Zlato polje, isolated from the town’s centre but also a great starting point, since there is a merely 10 minute walk from the athletics stadium, indoor pool, tennis courts and outdoor basketball courts on the one side, to Šmarjetna gora on the other side. This enables us to have a lot of basketball practices outdoors, and the nature itself helps to relax and develop intuitive abilities of young basketball players. Our goals are clearly set. In the following 5 years, we would be very pleased if at least 30 basketball players participated in the camp and we also plan to expand our professional team to 10 people. We want to achieve our goals step by step, on good and firm grounds, and we are convinced our players will step out with their top results.
