Basketball Player program

YFU Lithuania is offering a wonderful chance to experience what it means to play basketball in our country! Country that has basketball as a second religion, country that has many medals on European and world levels, country that is bringing up some of the most wanted basketball players in the NBA and rest of the world! Basketball, “The second religion of Lithuania”, attracts the largest crowds to arenas and TV screens.

We, YFU Lithuania, offer an exchange student to find not only host family and school, but also to become a part of the basketball community in Lithuania by attending a basketball school of the level that student already is. The sport school will be in the same area as student’s host family and secondary school. Once in a while sport school will be taking teams to play games in other cities, against other schools. It actually is an experience of a certain culture!
