From this camp, seven teens will be selected by the NBA coaches in consultation with the schools’ coaches to represent Antigua and Barbuda in Trinidad at the NBA Jumpstart Elite camp scheduled for July 14-15, where they will compete with the other elite selectees from the other markets.

The top 14 – eight boys and six girls – will then be selected to be a part of the NBA Experience event in the United States, (they will travel to the U.S).
