BIU was created from a friendly relationship that emerged a long time ago on both sides of the Atlantic, between American and European coaches. The purpose of this project is to extend basketball connections and to encourage cultural and language exchange in a globalized world.

Co-founder

I heritage my passion for basketball from my parents and I really enjoyed as a player. Moreover, I have lived in Australia, Portugal and in Spain. From all these experiences what I loved the most was meeting new people, learning and improving a new language and discovering other mindsets. I would like you to have the same experience with the BIU Camp.

From a very young age, basketball is part of my life. I have enjoyed the championships finals in Spain and Catalonia, I have studied physical activity sciences in both Barcelona and England and have had the experience of living in the United States.

When I was 12 years old I turned my ACL, since then I learned to appreciate what means to be able to play this sport. I’ve been training basketball teams for 10 years now. When I am not coaching I’m teaching in a school. When a door closes, another one opens.

Sergi Brugué

Sergi Brugué

Basketball Coach in Sweden

I started training at age 13 when I realized that I liked sharing and teaching more than playing. After 12 years of training, it is the first season that I can be a full-time coach. I do not consider it a job because it is a dream come true. Cheerful and positive by profession. Always with a smile.

I am the Head Coach of one of the best College in Wisconsin, champion of several state titles in recent years. Being able to train Spanish players is a great opportunity for me, to be able to learn about their most collective style of play and the game without the ball. I love participating in the BIU Camp.
