Marius Grigonis on Zalgiris Professional Camp: “It’s everything a professional basketball player needs” 0
Between the 29th of July and the 10th of August, Zalgiris Arena will host the Zalgiris Professional Camp for basketball players 16 and older for the second consecutive year.
Given all EuroLeague-level facilities and conditions, players will work on their basketball skills, understanding of the game, physical preparation and will get ready for the upcoming season with coaches of the Zalgiris system: Tomas Masiulis, Mantas Sernius, Darius Sirtautas, amongst others. Justinas Grainys and Nerijus Navickas, who are responsible for the physical preparations of the main Zalgiris team, will also be taking on the role during the entirety of the camp.
One of last season’s attendees, Zalgiris guard Marius Grigonis, shared his experience at the camp.
“Zalgiris Professional Camp is important for every player who’s looking to improve. It helped me get in good shape for the season. There’s really a lot that goes into it and it’s everything a professional basketball player needs. Coaches really try to account for each players’ individuals needs.”
Besides Grigonis, Zalgiris Professional Camp had players such as Paulius Valinskas, Saulius Kulvietis and Donatas Tarolis participating last summer.
The camp will consist of 22 activities (11 working on skills and 11 working on physical preparations). Players will also be taken care of after practices, with the Zalgiris medical staff and all the facilities in Zalgirio Arena available for use – massages, sauna, ice baths, while additional swimming pool and football activities would also be available.
Registration to the top-quality training camp is open until the 1st of July, with the participation fee starting at 999 euros until the 15th of June. The price is set to increase afterwards. A 10 percent discount is applied to attendees coming back for a second consecutive time.
