Veszprém BASKETBALL

Veszprém x ATHLETE PLUS

Athlete Plus, a scholarship consulting agency, and Veszprém Basketball Club from Hungary are partnering to form new possibilities for youth basketball players.

The partnership is built on a shared commitment to create an environment that helps young athletes develop their skills both on and off the court. Athlete Plus and Veszprém BC will be organizing webinars and showcases where Hungarian youth basketball players can show off their abilities to coaches from around the world. In addition, we will be bringing together experts in both sports psychology and academic tutoring to help athletes gain confidence in their abilities both on the court and in the classroom. Finally, we will be holding summer camps where kids can learn more about what it takes to become a student-athlete while also gaining leadership skills through fun activities such as team building exercises and community service projects.

Starting in January 2023, two organizations will work on developing a Veszprém Athlete Plus Academy that will provide basketball and academic development opportunity to athletes all over the world.
