Virginia native goes to Israel


As any true athlete knows, diet and nutrition is important for your overall health and success. For great performance, sometimes you need to train smarter, not harder.

Charlottesville, Virginia native, Daniel Ginsberg, starts his second professional basketball season next week on October 27th in Eilat, Israel.

Last season with the New England Anchors, Ginsberg averaged 10 points, 5.3 assist, 3.1 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game. He eventually landed representation with Blue & White Basketball Agency based in Israel.

After committing to Hapoel Zohar Eilat in Liga Alef, he moved to Eilat, Israel on a beach.

“It’s a beautiful tourist city that is sunny everyday,” said Ginsberg.

Ginsberg goal this season for the Hapoel Zohar Eilat is to win the league championship.

“We can accomplish this goal by taking advantage of our quick and lengthy team that can press full court over a full game span, putting continuous pressure on the other team and turning defense to instant offense,” said Ginsberg.

Besides being a professional athlete, Ginsberg holds several titles. He is certified in Plant Based Nutrition,a fitness coach and trainer. During the off-season, Ginsberg travels back home to coach both boys and girls ages 5-18 with the Virginia Basketball Academy  (VABA). He also uses that time to train with his personal trainer and friend of 15 years, Sampson Dale.

Dale is currently seeking his masters in Athletic Performance. In the future, Ginsberg plans to take the money he earned playing professional basketball and open a fitness center that will include a basketball court and green field in his hometown with Dale.
