Sports Academy Featured on KCLU: Some Pro Basketball Hopefuls In Ventura County Prepping For NBA Draft
The NBA’s next big star might not be in New York or Los Angeles right now but at a sports complex in Ventura County.
A dozen high-level college basketball players from teams like the University of Kentucky, Houston, Indiana, and Duke are in the Conejo Valley, for a special new training program intended to prepare them for the NBA draft.
Andrew Henke is the Director of Basketball for what’s called The Sports Academy, a new sports training facility located in Thousand Oaks. He says they are helping the players get into peak physical condition, as well as working with them mentally on everything from the pressure of playing for scouts, and team officials to dealing with the interviews which are part of the process.
