"This year's camp has an added dimension to it in that an international coach from Finland will help train campers, as well as conduct the seminar. He will also be at the All-Star Game to observe the youths at play and hopefully will spot talents that can be recommended to educational institutions, teams and agents in Europe and the USA," the release concluded.
