Led by Yacine Aouadi, in charge of player development for the Limoges CSP professional team, the “Upsilon” camp will take place from July 18 to 22 at the Basket Center in Strasbourg and will welcome professional basketball players for a week. work based on physical, technical and cognitive development.
A UNIQUE CAMP
Upsilon is a one-of-a-kind event that brings together high-level basketball players and sports professionals from different backgrounds: sports psychology, physical preparation, individual training, healthcare, etc.
The objective of this camp is therefore to highlight a relevant working method adapted to professional basketball players based on 3 very specific aspects: physical, technical and cognitive development.
This highlight of off-season work therefore allows a few professional players to develop their skills in space during various personalized training sessions led in particular by Yacine Aouadi. The goal is both to build on the work done during the season and to provide leads for sustaining progress throughout the year. To support Yacine, Julien Southon, sports psychologist in F1, WRC, golf, basketball; Alain Digbeu, the ASVEL Legend winger and one of the few players to have played for FC Barcelona and Real Madrid; Clément Sartel, physiotherapist from CSP Limoges; Faycel Kort, handball physical trainer at the Brest Bretagne Handball Club; they will be assisted by several assistant coaches who will be present to work on more specific aspects but still related to the game.
Yacine Aouadi, Founder of the Upsilon camp: “Since 2015, I have had the chance to train very high level players individually. Whether Luc Mbah Moute, Rudy Gobert, Axel Bouteille, Livio Jean-Charles or Nicolas Lang, these players work whatever the time of year. I have always defended the fact that the season was one of the best times to work because connected to the coaching staff, the doctors, the physical trainers, the work is all the more efficient. This summer, I would like to share this experience that Limoges CSP has allowed me to set up for 4 seasons. Upsilon is the opportunity to bring together professional players and quality speakers around this approach. I am very happy to see Puma, LD Formation, ISG, FITNESS BOUTIQUE and La Fabrique du Café join us and trust us in this adventure and to carry out this project at the Basket Center in Strasbourg.”
SEVERAL EXPERIENCED FRENCH PLAYERS
The first edition of the camp will take place this summer and many players from the perimeter of French basketball have already agreed to participate this summer. Among them, we find in particular the pivot and player of Virtus Bologna, the MVP of the Eurocup Mam Jaiteh. The full roster will be announced very soon.
Mam Jaiteh, Virtus Bologna player: “I knew Yacine when I was playing in Limoges. We worked together a few months before my departure for Turin. Since that time, we have always been connected. When he talked about his project, I immediately joined. Knowing that there is a group of players just as motivated as me, that everything will be individualized and knowing that the staff is experienced, convinced me.
