The head coach of the U-16 boys National team: "This is the second training camp in this season. The task of the first camp was to scout players from different regions and now we are aimed at finding out their strengths such as individual skill, tactical thinking, and psychological stability. There have been radical changes in the list of participants comparing to the previous training camp. Ten new players have been presented in the list and 8 of them represent the team "RCOP-SDUSHOR" at the Championships, 2 more players are from Vitebsk and from Dzerzhinsk. We run all our practices in a working mood. The majority of boys want to get into the National Team for the FIBA U16 European Championship. However, as a coaching staff, we try our best to prepare them so they can show decent results there. I won’t hide that some players will have to make efforts to improve their skills, that’s why each of them will receive an individual plan to for an independent workout. In addition, it’s worth noting that in the nearest future we plan to invite players’06, who are the leaders of the team SDUSHOR BC "Tsmoki-Minsk", join the training process.

We would like to remind that the Belarusian U-16 boys National team is preparing for the FIBA U16 European Championship (Division B). The games are scheduled from 13th to 21st August 2021 in Sofia (Bulgaria).
