International basketball camp Kolasin is designed for boys and girls from ages 9-17. All the participants of the camp will work in groups under a specially prepared program and will be devided according to their age and acquired basketball skills.
The specific camp program was prepared for players with an idea in mind to maximally improve certain elements of their game in a short time period, but also to make new friendships through fun, games and socializing with other camp participants.
The altitude of 950m alone, as well as the climate in the summer period, is extremely recommendable for hosting such a camp. Also, a comprehensive infrastructure needed for the organization of the camp – with three outdoor and two indoor courts – completely satisfies all the criteria.
Already after the first season camp has become international, and in the first three seasons of the camp has been over 1000 boys and girls. The names of Nikola Vucevic, Bojan Dubljevic, Sasa Pavlovic, Jelena Dubljevic, Iva Perovanovic, Coaches Miodrag Kadija, Zvezdan Mitrovic, Nikola Antic and many others who were promoters of the camp in the first two seasons, with program that we prepared for all participants, were more than enough reason to camp become recognizable in every sense.
THE IDEA ABOUT MAKING A BASKETBALL CAMP WAS BORN WHILE WE WERE ALL STILL ACTIVELY PLAYING
Our estimation was that when we finished our professional careers we would keep being active in basketball, but in a different way. Our great basketball experience helped us in our intention to build a serious basketball camp which would boost the Montenegrin basketball scene. Above all, our first priority was to make sure the participants are safe and secure, while we also wanted to bring expert work to all age groups.
