We are looking for 3 – 4 athletes who will join the camp to provide a question to an NBA player or two. The player(s) that the NBA is working on to attend the camp is TBC at this point, but once confirmed we will advise.  If you have an athlete from your Program that can join the camp and can ask a live question please let me know.

Lastly, the NBA will be having their Season of Giving campaign starting from today (November 23rd) to December 25th, 2020. Special Olympics will be highlighted on December 3rd. If you have an athlete/coach story (ideally a basketball story) that can be highlighted on this day the NBA will push this story out on all their social platforms. Please let me know if you have a story that can be highlighted.

A BIG THANK YOU in advance for getting this message out and inspiring athletes, Unified partners and coaches in your countries to participate in the 3rd Jr. NBA Special Olympics Camp – Online.
