What should I bring to Camp?
Remember that this is suggested and you can adjust to your own personal needs: 12 pairs sweat socks, 2 pairs of basketball sneakers, 7 t-shirts, 1 sweat suit, 5 pair's shorts, 1 sweater, pair of jeans, 2 towels, toilet articles. You do not have to bring your own basketball; we have plenty of our own on Camp.


In case that you are not using our bus, or you are coming by car, we expect you to be there on the day of Camp at 1 pm. We are starting with dinner, but you need some time to be settled and meet some new friends.

Can I arrive a day earlier or stay a day late?
It's not advised unless you are flying very long distances. In that case we could book a room for you in one of the Belgrade hotels, but that service is not included in the price of the Camp.

I heard that you organize transfer to Kopaonik by bus for free, is that true?
It is true that we organize transfer Belgrade-Kopaonik-Belgrade, but since we don't have our own bus, it is not for free. The price of the transfer is very popular and we sincerely suggest you to use our bus. That is the easiest and the safest way to get to Kopaonik right on time.

Where does this bus leave from and when?
This bus will leave on the day of camp from Zemun, where we are settled at 9 am, but you have to be there at 8:30 am. This bus goes directly into camp and is chartered for Yubac's use only. Naturally, there is supervision of our coaches during the ride.

6. How will my son get to camp from the airport?
We usually offer an extra service to the foreign campers. That extra service includes pickup from the airport, bus or train terminal near the camp, but it has to be paid separately. For such an service you have to call or e-mail us with his flight time, airline and any other travel information in order for us to place him on our list.


For late arrivals, let us know your arrival time or call with your flight delay and we will try to arrange pickup, transportation or even hotel if it's necessary.

8. How will I know my son has arrived at camp?
We will not call if your son arrives at camp. We will always call if he does not arrive at camp. Please instruct your son to call when he arrives and gets settled. In some of our locations, cell phones do not work because they may be in rural areas. In these cases, he should have a calling card or change.


According to the time, your flight should leave; we have to build into this time the transportation from the camp to the airport. The very important thing is to arrange your departure not to disrupt the final day and officially ending ceremony.


When you arrive on camp, you will be asked if you want to deposit any money in the bank of the camp. The money you put into it cannot be lost or stolen. If you do not do that, any money or values you lose or that are potentially stolen cannot be replaced. At the end of the camp, any unspent money will be returned to you in full.

In order to keep the competition level even at camp, so young players won't be able to play with seniors, we have a tryout system. The tryouts are games that our coaches observe to gage the ability of each camper and take notes. After tryouts camper goes to an orientation, where he gets the opportunity to ask questions. While that is going on our coaches, who watched the campers will discuss their abilities.
