The NBA’s D-League is a training center for college players
A new program, the D-Leagues National Development Program (NDP), has opened up basketball training camps for college and high school players in a bid to address the growing number of players who have been diagnosed with autism.
The league says that its new program is designed to help young athletes get the most out of their education and prepare them for life in the NBA.
The D-league offers more than 20 programs each year, including mentoring, game day practice, team building, and coaching sessions.
The league also runs a series of clinics on the campus of Boston University to help players improve their game and develop a stronger social network.
The D-Laws National Development League (NDLL) has expanded to include men and women and is expected to begin offering basketball training in its first season in 2020.
The NBA is also offering the DLL a dedicated league office in order to provide more support for its teams and players.
The program will focus on assisting young players develop the skills and confidence necessary to be successful on the basketball court, NBA spokesman Mark Bartelstein said in a statement.
“The DLL is a great example of a community-based program that is working to build the confidence and self-esteem of players through an environment that is tailored to help them achieve their full potential,” he said.
“In the coming years, we are committed to expanding the DCLL and developing a network of more than 100 DLL coaches and players across the country.”
We are excited to see the first DLL training camps opening this fall and we look forward to sharing more information as soon as it becomes available.
“The DCL was launched in January, and will be run by a network comprised of the NBA’s coaching staff, D-team coaches, and other staff.
