August 10, 2009
East Rutherford, N.J.—On Tuesday, August 11th, Nets All-Star guard Devin Harris will host his fourth annual basketball camp for approximately 350 underprivileged youth in the Milwaukee area. The camp will focus on fundamentals such as shooting, passing, dribbling, defense and rebounding as well as a daily educational element from Outlook University.
Special donations on behalf of Devin Harris and his 34 Ways to Assist Foundation will be presented at the camp. A check presentation ceremony will kick off the camp Tuesday morning.
“I’m really looking forward to this basketball camp,” said Nets guard Devin Harris. “As a professional athlete, I feel it’s very important to give back to the community that has given so much to me. The donations from my Foundation are just one small way that I can show my appreciation. Just being in the gym with these kids and spending some quality time with them is what I look forward to the most.”
Harris will be at the camp everyday helping instruct the attendees on the fundamentals of basketball. The camp will also be instructed by well-respected high school and college coaches from the Milwaukee and Madison areas.
Each camper will receive an official camp jersey, T-shirt, and signed picture. Other prizes will be given out during the week including Devin Harris shoes, jerseys, and other goodies and memorabilia.
