James Gormley,  from Kestrels Basketball Club,  Ireland,  came to The First Sports Basketball High School, Belgrade to improve his fundamental basketball skills.

Why did you decide to come here?

I wanted to improve my skills and gain more basketball experience. I also wanted to see what it would be like to be away from home for the first time. I have only been playing a year and my personal trainer said it would be great for me to come here as Serbia is  very well known for its basketball.

What are your impressions about practices here?

Practices here are very intense and hard but at the same time they are enjoyable and they are helpful to improve my game. I feel that the individual sessions are really helpful. They are strengthening my core points in my game.

What are your plans for the future?

To take my basketball to a new level and to follow my dream of making it to the NBA. If NBA doesn’t work out, i would love to come to Europe to play the highest division of basketball here.
