Invitees To #SIBURCAMP Revealed

The list of participants in the #SIBURCAMP children's basketball camp--a joint project of the VTB United League and SIBUR with the support of the Russian Basketball Federation--has been revealed. More than 800 young athletes took place in the qualifying rounds with the 21 best performers earning invites to the camp.

21 athletes (no older than 14 years old) from seven Russian cities will train with Russia's top coaches from June 2-12 in Moscow. The project's primary goal is to demonstrate the important role of sports in a children's development. The project is part of the SIBUR School of Basketball program, which unites the company's various basketball-related projects.

#SIBURCAMP qualifiers were held in seven Russian cities (Voronezh, Tolyatti, Tomsk, Nizhnevartovsk, Perm, Tobolsk and Dzerzhinsk), where SIBUR and the NBA helped restore basketball courts. More than 800 kids participated in the mini-camps, exceeding organizer expectations.

Athletes underwent basketball and psychological testing, as well as a special sensory visualization test. The unique technology was developed by sports academics with the support of the Federation of Russian Computer Sports specifically for this project.

The results of the testing were analyzed by specialists under the direction of Moscow State Academy of Physical Education professor Anatoly Laptev. The 21 winners received a spot in the #SIBURCAMP.
