Atlanta, July 23, 2008— The Atlanta Dream announced today the dates and location for the organization’s first-ever girls basketball camp. The two-day camp, which features Atlanta Dream players and coaches, will be conducted from August 4-5 at Second Ponce de Leon Baptist Church.
This camp is open only to girls ages 10-13 and is designed to fit a wide range of skill sets. Each session will last from 8:30 am- 4:30 pm daily. Interested participants must submit the necessary registration form and $195 payment. Only 60 spots are available, which will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
The camp will focus on improving fundamentals, techniques, and all-around skills through various drills, games and competitions. Participants will receive an Atlanta Dream practice jersey, two tickets to an Atlanta Dream home game and various other giveaways. Lunch will be provided each day on site.
Six Atlanta Dream players have been confirmed to attend the camp, and at least three players will be present at all times. The following players will be in attendance: Izi Castro Marques, Betty Lennox, Kristin Haynie, Kasha Terry, Jennifer Lacy and Erika DeSouza. Atlanta Dream Head Coach Marynell Meadors will also be at the camp with her coaching staff. For campers that choose to bring cameras, there will be designated times during which the Dream players will be available for photographs.
1. Erika de Souza's command of English is awful. Good thing Izi will be there to translate for her.
2. Will Izi be teaching kids how to be a head case?
3. I can see Betty's drills. "Alright kids, time for 'one against five'!"
4. afoundingfan decried the fact that participation is limited to young girls. I'd like to see a "Never Too Old" camp for people who have never played basketball before.
