Can you tell us about the TrenchWork Sports basketball camp?
Trenchwork Sports started as an idea by Johnathan Hudson. He wanted to give international players in Europe an opportunity to work with some of the best coaches in the world (NBA or Euroleague), to help build their personal skills and development while also fostering an offseason culture in all around Europe.
When and where will the camp take place?
The camp will take place in Athens, Greece at the Famous Peace and Friendship Arena from July 27 to August 4th. There are different packages and different price points to try to cater to all male and female athletes that want to attend. We wanted to make sure this was a camp available to any athletes that wanted to participate while still keeping a high level of professionalism and quality.

There will be 24/7 access to the gym during these 2 weeks where there will 3 shoot guns available to the players.
