- BK Klatovy (Czechia)

BK Klatovy (Registered as Civic Association – Sport Club) ranks among 4 largest basketball clubs in the Czech Republic. The club had 14 teams participating in official CBF competitions during 2017 – 18 season. The club´s main aim is to develop youth basketball from the very bottom of the age pyramid. At the moment there are 7 pre-basketball preparation programs at each school in Klatovy as well as in 3 surrounding towns – Janovice, Měčín and Švihov. In order to provide the highest level of coaching for its youth the club tries to involve as many former club´s players as possible to whom in turn it tries to provide the best available level of coaching education and preparation. Thanks to this approach the club has been able to raise the local talent to level of youth national teams, both boys and girls, and also few senior level league players. The club does not focus solely on numbers, wins and losses but we try to look at complex educational process of our players. We believe sport is an ideal way to familiarize youth with the concept of hard and patient work that always pays off in the long run.
