Former IMG Academy basketball program student, Adam Correia, has recently been named to the Bermuda National Team which will be playing in the upcoming Caribbean Basketball Championship.
"I'm the youngest one on the team," says Correia, "but I'm very proud and will do my best to represent my country."
While working out at the Basketball Academy, Correia was able to add some tools to his game while getting some valuable time on the floor.
"IMG gave me a lot of experience. They have better players there, and when you play with better players, you get better too. Coach Dan (Barto) helped me a lot. While I was there I developed my dribble-drive move. I'm still an outside shooter, but it is nice to have something else to go to."
Correia also spoke of the mental conditioning aspect that the Basketball Academy offers, which is part of the training regimen that players go through.
"The mental conditioning helped me come out of my shell, made me be more vocal and become a better leader."
The Caribbean Basketball Championship will be help in the British Virgin Islands on the island of Tortola on June 28th through July 4th. Correia will be trying to help Bermuda to capture it's first-ever CBC medal.
