Fresh off his trip to China as part of the expansion of Orange County Magic to basketball players and coaches overseas, Coach Saintignon made a month-long trip to Italy and Croatia.
This is not the first time Saintignon has made the trip to the two countries on behalf of basketball, as he has been to both places several times already. This time, his 10th invitation, WBSC invited the coach to Italy to provide coaching to their players as well as scholarship opportunities to come train in the U.S. to anyone the coach thought might be worthy of such an opportunity.
The Coach then went on to Croatia to take part in the Frendagio Basketball Camp. The camp was established by a long-time colleague of Saintignon who years ago invited him to come annually and be a part of establishing and building this basketball camp in Croatia, where basketball is becoming more and more popular.
