Coach and camper quotes:

Bret Breilmaier, Brooklyn Nets Assistant Coach
“The talent level, the kids, how hard they play and the way they play together is impressive. The talent of kids from all the countries is very good. We are lucky to work with these kids and trying help them to improve their skills so hopefully they can take that back to their teams.”

Princepal Singh, The NBA Academy India, India
“It’s a great feeling to have the camp here in India. At home, there is always an extra motivation to do your best. But having said that, this camp also is a great opportunity for Indian campers to learn from the best and see where they stand.”

Amaan Sandhu, The NBA Academy India, India
“You don’t get to play alongside the best in Asia everyday, and also train under the best in the world. Basketball Without Borders is a great platform for all campers to showcase their talent and take in as much as possible from the best in the business.”
