Elite Euro Talent camp in Italy
Follow us to find out who will be guest basketball coaches and scouts for this showcase edition. The list is constantly being updated as we get confirmations.
Our guest coaches will be an active part of the Elite Euro Talent Showcase & Camp, not only as coaches on the court during the practices, but also off the court sharing their basketball knowledge of the game and giving advice in ways to help participants become better players and students.
At the same time, coaches will assess possible new talents for their programs and potentially offer a scholarship to players that are top prospects.
For these reasons, participating in the 2023 Elite Euro Talent Showcase & Camp is a unique opportunity to get seen and to expose your talent.
