For kids in the South East (Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo), it will be their turn from April 19 to 21 in Onitsha to learn about the fundamentals of basketball under some of the best coaches within and outside Nigeria.
According to the organisers, participation is absolutely free with 60 boys and 40 girls between the age of 14 and 19 expected at each venue.
