MILTON, Ga. Up with Kids Sports held a basketball camp July 15-19 where members of the Atlanta Hawks Basketball Development team helped out.
Shirts and tickets were handed out to the roughly 35 Cambridge High School students who attended. Athletes had the opportunity to learn offensive post moves and guard moves, defensive strategies, improve shooting mechanics, create space to score and build confidence for the 2013-14 basketball season. Each drill was carefully chosen with the goal of challenging each athlete.
