Basketball Camp Times Two

I am currently in town for a week to work with Scholar Athletes for Change 3rd annual basketball camp.  The camp is ran by Pierre Jallow, who went to collage in Missouri and William Jewell College and then played professionally in Australia, Estonia, Finland, Ireland and England.  

There are about 100 kids ranging in age from 10-18 and about half of them are girls.  I am helping with the advanced girls group.  It is going well I have really enjoyed working with the kids teaching them new skills and seeing how much they improve from day to day.  

This camp is different than the camp I helped out with last month.  This camp emphasizes scholastics.  The kids have to write a one page essay by the end of the camp and the best paper will be judged and then published in the local paper.
