It's been nearly a couple of months since the NBA Basketball Schools India program first moved online with their e-coaching lessons to ensure that young kids don't lose their contact with the sport while continuing to adhere to the social distancing guidelines needed to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

After multiple current NBA Academy India student-athletes - boys and girls - joined in on their live video sessions, their most recent call included the current Technical Director of the NBA Academy India - Scott Flemming.
