He will be there for the camping because he has passion about basketball.The camp starts 13th of August and runs till 18th. It is a week-long camping. The target is to take kids out of the streets and make them realize their potentials in basketball.”
“We always have large turnout of players in each state.We have had the camp and they always ask questions. At the end of the camping, we poll these players – the best among them – together and train them.
