County Upper Basketball Club hosted their Summer camp this past week. To help bring some international experience and knowledge to their players Coach Johnson brought in his good friend Dan Petts who is currently the Assistant Coach with both the Great Britain U20’s Men’s team as well as OBRADOIRO in the ACB (the top Professional Basketball League in Spain).
To be able to bring a coach with Dan’s background and experience to coach our players in this small town is huge.Coach Johnson
Throughout the week Dan Petts put the County Upper players through their paces technically and tactically helping players from the Bury St. Edmunds area get a taste of what basketball is like in Spain.
In his day job Dan while coaching in the ACB he also rubs shoulders with Coaches and scouts from the NBA, Euroleague, NCAA D1 to domestic teams within Europe. This season while assisting the Men’s pro team at Obradiora in the ACB he also led their U16 Boys team to the Spanish National Finals for the first time in the clubs history. Dan has a lot of experience coaching from U11’s through to Senior Men. I feel our players really enjoyed themselves and took away a lot of new basketball knowledge from Dan. It was not only our players who learn a lot, our coaches did too. I am hoping our club will be working with Dan again in the future.Coach Johnson
