Jacopo Skuarčina for International Basketball Camp: the young have to reiterate that nothing is impossible

20-06-2016 14:50

IacopoJacopo Skuarčina is another one of the Italian coaches who will take part in the International Basketball Camp in Gabrovo (read here). In a brief interview Skuarčina tells about his work of the Apennines and the ideas for the development of young players and the camp:
Tell me more about your experience with what coaches and players work now?

-I started coaching career, a 22-year-old in Venaria can, which is a small town near Turin, where it gained for three seasons with teams for girls to 15 and 17 years. In my second season started and important two-year specialization across Italy, which gave me the opportunity to learn from some of the best coaches as Andrea Kapobianko, Franco Marčeleti and Antonio Bokino. In the season of 2013/2014 I became part of the headquarters of ICP basketball thanks to the desire of Andrea Bauzano. In fact I am currently Assistant of Vincenco Di Melio (who is Assistant to the national youth up to 18 years) at the youth team, which is one of the best in Italy with interesting talent as Caruso, Baldaso, Trejer and Hagen. Also I am assistant coach and men's team, which plays in the third Division, plus Italian head coach of 14-year-old boys.
-How your club is organized?

-CMD Basketball is one of the top clubs in Italy and Europe for young athletes. Our idea is to create players that are willing to play professionally and that to happen at the right time, without haste or squeeze them before they are ready. Formiraŝiât process is long and complicated and require careful and specific program. Individual development of players in a team context, is at the heart of our work and everything revolves around it.
-What's the most important thing for the development of a young player?

I don't think that's one thing. I think that the development of the young players have to depend on many aspects (technical and tactical, physical, mental). That being said, I'm sure it all starts in the heads of the players-the work ethic is something extremely important. The will to progress and desire are the ordinary things that make you a better player and person, or at least as much as possible with your natural skills.
-Do you have experience in similar organizations camps in other States, and what is the advantage for the players in them?

-I have participated in quite a few organizations camps in Italy and last year for the first time I was out in the Wine, Estonia. There I trained young players from different countries and I had the living room meeting with coaches from all over Europe. This was my first European camp and without a doubt I can say it was amazing and very stimulating experience. I learned a lot of things, not only technical, but also about relationships and I think the players have managed to gain benefit from the different training methods and philosophies. The fact that kamp″t was not one-sided, it made it very special for everyone and especially for the children who progressed a lot for such a short period. It is clear that the daily work (about 6 hours a day on the ground plus the time spent together outside the Hall) with players of the same level, and sometimes higher, while at the same time and with different personalities and approaches, making for a child's individual progress even faster.
Could you say something of Bulgarian children? What to expect from you?

I'm a coach who loves basketball more than anything else. I love working with young players and trying to teach them how to improve their game and their basic knowledge, and at the same time and I'm still trying to learn from them how to adapt my coaching methods and ideas. I would like all children have fun playing this wonderful sport, but to have fun, you have to sacrifice themselves on the pitch, you have to work harder, have to accept every note and I have to reiterate that nothing is impossible. And this is indeed the case.

"My name is Eboni, from Plovdiv am and train at Beroe. I'm 15 years old. This is the sixth camp to me. Of all Bulgarian camps, of which I have been, I liked this in Gabrovo. Conditions were quite good and the hotel, and in the Hall. The preparation was perfect, there was a military-industrial complex. We had lectures by Georgi Panov and psychologist. The coaches who lead the group that wasn't for me were pretty good – Antonio Stankov and Nicholas Dale. In our group we had the opportunity to train with a coach in America, and courses had everywhere. And the 12 groups had a place to work out.


A day in the Campa passed so for our group: woke up at 6:30 and 7:00 am we had breakfast, then practice from 8:00 to 9:30 and rest until 12:30. Then we had lunch and afterwards we had free time to 14:00 and 16:00 break up, then drill from 17:15 to 18:30, and dinner. Then one hour break and one more workout from 8:15 to 21:00.


I have no recommendations for the following year, I was very pleased with this first edition. My dreams related to basketball, to play somewhere in Europe some day. Maybe Spain or Greece, and why not even in the NBA. With basketball I do already for eight years. "
