Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 24, 2009
The Kobe Basketball Academy returns to the beautiful campus at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles for the third year. Last summer, 600 lucky kids were able to learn the game of basketball from reigning MVP, Kobe Bryant. This July, youth from around the world will experience one of the nations premier youth basketball camps.
The Kobe Basketball Academy teaches young basketball players the importance of hard work, dedication and teamwork while refining their basketball skills. Participants will get the best instruction in the country from Bryant and his handpicked coaching staff. Each age group will specialize in a different type of offense that college and NBA teams run frequently like the Flex, Princeton and Triangle offenses. Campers will also be coached on the five fundamentals of basketball: defense, offense, passing, rebounding and shooting. The camp will conclude with a playoff system and award ceremony for each age group. Evening camp activities include guest speakers, Q & A session and counselor games.
"I had a lot of people influence my career when I was younger and I feel like it's time to share the knowledge and help teach the next generation," Bryant said. "The campers will improve their fundamentals and learn different offenses that will help them become better basketball players. If you love playing the game, if you are serious about the game, come down to the camp, you'll learn new techniques and have a great time."
Camp will take place July 6 - 10 and is open to boys and girls ages 8 - 18.
