The elite made accessible: Braswell Elite Basketball Camp
With Memorial Day Weekend upon us, it truly ushers in the start of summer break for many students (and yes, even the hard-working educators that are part of the day to day grind of the school year). Summer camps, including those building upon one's athletic, fitness, and overall wellness skills are part of what comes with the territory.
In this spirit, Jerry Braswell and his Braswell Elite Basketball Camp surely fits the bill in providing a sound summer activity that is grounded in best practices for basketball and beyond.
The Randolph-Clay High School and Wake Forest University alum has a sound track record of athletic and professional excellence. In playing with the likes of future Hall-of-Fame player Tim Duncan, Tony Rutland (now the men's basketball head coach at Hampton Christian (Hampton, VA)along with his time playing overseas, Braswell's commitment to young people through the lens of athletics is just one of the ways he gives back and supports the larger community. His camp takes place on June 18, 2017 from 9:30am-12pm in Lawrenceville, GA (2505 Newpoint Parkway, Suite 200).
The camp is open to students and players looking for ways to improve their skill-set. The three main focus areas are essential basketball skills and drills, speed and agility, along with strength and conditioning. Through the hands-on and best practice grounded instruction by Braswell and his staff, players of all levels are bound to learn something new that can be applied on the court and beyond.
The cost of the camp is $25 per student/participant. As an added special, for alumni of Randolph-Clay or Wake Forest, if their son/daughter is planning on attending, the cost is reduced to $15. For more details, including payment options (via cash, check, or credit card), contact Coach Jerry (678-628-3728) or Alisha Lee (770-624-9012).
Under the mantra of "Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard" (quote by the Golden State Warriors' small forward Kevin Durant), students and players are going to "put in work", but doing so in order to improve in all aspects of the game, including that of working with others, individual discipline, and their overall development. A growth opportunity for the court and beyond is taking place on June 18, 2017.
Through the work of Jerry Braswell and his team, elite instruction is clearly more accessible.
