After signing free agent Choi Jun-yong, KCC is investing in the development of its younger players.
Jeonju KCC’s Heo Woong, Lee Geun-hwi, Kim Dong-hyun, and Song Dong-hoon will travel to Dallas, USA, for about four weeks of skill training. The departure schedule varies. Lee Geun-hwi, Kim Dong-hyun, and Song Dong-hoon will fly to the US on the 3rd. Only Heo Woong-man will leave on the 4th due to his personal schedule.
Upon arrival, the four will undergo a personalized program with simple tests and measurements. They are expected to return home on July 2.
Only Heo is a middle-aged veteran who has played seven seasons in the pros (including a comeback season after his military discharge), but the other three are young players in their third year or less. Lee Geun-hwi has shown promise with his three-point shooting, but he has a lot to work on in terms of consistency and defense. Kim Dong-hyun is a 21-year-old prospect who entered the pro ranks as an early entry. Song Dong-hoon is a rookie who made his debut last season.
A KCC official said, “They are all young players. They are going to receive skill training for development. I hope they will learn a lot through the advanced program.”
It is noteworthy that coach Shin Myung-ho will also accompany them. He will travel with the young athletes to learn about the training program, as well as to help them get more organized in their local training. If he also learns the training program, KCC can expect to maximize the effectiveness of their training after returning home.토토사이트
While Heo and the rookies head to the United States, the squad will also convene. KCC will convene the squad on July 7 to begin preparations for the upcoming season in earnest. Ragan-ah has already been working with performance enhancement specialist Dr. Kang Sung-woo to improve his condition. Newlywed Lee Seung-hyun will also return from his honeymoon, while newcomer Choi Jun-yong will also take his first steps as a KCC man.
Meanwhile, KCC will travel to Taebaek in late July or early August for a training camp to improve their fitness for the 2023-2024 season.
