The players are: Caelin Peters [14], who was voted the MVP on day 1 of the clinic, Jorel Smith [15], Jalen Currin [15 ], Rye Ahronson [15], Kobie Reid [15], Siyaunne Hall [16] and Ishan- Nae Smith [16].

Robin Seale, Digicel & BTC CEO said, “For the second year running we had a fantastic Jumpstart clinic and again the NBA coaches were impressed not only by the ability, but the enthusiasm and willingness of the players to learn.

“We look forward to seeing the seven players again in October and I know it wasn’t an easy decision for the NBA coaches to select those players given the high standard everyone showed.”
