Kelly Olynyk's summer vacation is taking him to Ho Chi Minh City, where the Boston Celtics rookie big man will participate in Jr. NBA Vietnam 2014 from June 13-15. Here's more on Olynyk's trip from the NBA:
Kelly Olynyk of the Boston Celtics will be in Ho Chi Minh City to participate in the Jr. NBA Vietnam 2014 presented by Dutch Lady National Training Camp to help coach participants from all over the country vying to become Jr. NBA Vietnam All-Stars. The National Training Camp will be held at Ton Duc Thang University from June 13-15.
“I am excited to be involved with the Jr. NBA program because it not only provides top quality basketball instruction, but also teaches valuable life skills that are important off the court,” said Olynyk. “The participants have worked hard to earn their spots at the National Training Camp and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share my skills and knowledge with them.”
The National Training Camp is the culmination of the Jr. NBA Vietnam 2014 presented by Dutch Lady program, providing the top 40 boys and top 24 girls the opportunity to train with and compete against their peers. The top participants were selected from the standout performers at the Selection Camp in May. At the end of the National Training Camp, 10 boys and 4 girls will be named as the inaugural Jr. NBA Vietnam All-Stars. These select campers will be rewarded with a unique NBA experience and the opportunity to play against a counterpart team from another country later in the year.
