Impact Basketball is an American academy that helps develop high school basketball kids right up to NBA veterans, and some of their coaches are running a camp here in Auckland.
The Impact training system is intense and covers the same training methods that NBA stars use.
But these players learnt more than just skills today, with success mentality and mental toughness being high on the agenda.
Furthermore, these basketball coaches from the States were impressed with the talent of these young NZ players.
It's hoped some of these rising stars will achieve their dreams and ascend to the heights of College Basketball in America.
