While Sejin Mathew and Princepal Singh are the Indians in the boys' list, Pushpa is the lone representative from the country in the girls' section. Current NBA assistant coaches John Bryant, Ed Pinckney, Jonah Herscu and Will Scott, former NBA head coach and 1992 "Dream Team" assistant coach P.J. Carlesimo, former NBA champion head coach Paul Westhead, and USA Basketball coach Don Showalter will oversee the youngsters in the camp.
The coaches will lead the campers through a variety of activities on and off the court, including movement efficiency, positional skill development, shooting and skills competitions, five-on-five games, and daily life skills seminars focusing on health, leadership and communication.
