By focusing on the individual player, creating a comprehensive training program, LBBA will highlight your strengths and correct your weaknesses.
The Academy offers an intense seven months development basketball program for young talented basketball players from age 16. Players from all over the world can join the Luxembourg Basketball Academy but the number of available spots is limited as we really want to focus on each individual player’s development.
You will practice twice a day like a pro, including on-the-court basketball practice as well as of-the-court conditioning and physical strength workouts, with professional coaches focusing on improving and developing your individual skills. In order to sustain that work pace, LBBA carries great importance to nutrition and thus each player will be sensitized and educated on nutritional issues.
Whatever your ambitions may be, LBBA will assist you towards achieving those goals :
