Douwe de Wit and Jose Miguel Lopez, Coach of the National Team of Spain, led the 5th ABAFE Summer Camp for Women under 22 in Getafe, Spain from 6th to 11th July 2014.
The group of 22 players was divided into 2 groups after the first practice. In the first group of 12 players were new players and attention was paid to the fundamentals. Each practice was ended with a game 5 - 5.
The other, more experienced group (10 players,) worked also every practice on the fundamentals and also a start made on the fast break etc.
In both groups the progress of some players was amazing.
Many thanks to Douwe and to Jose for leading this camp and also to Esther Torres for the excellent organisation and co operation of the camp.
