John's Story

My passion for basketball came when I did not make the team my freshman year. I felt like all of the time that I had spent playing basketball with my friends went to waste. Instead of giving up, I let not making the team act as my motivation and I worked harder than ever. Through countless hours of hard work and training, I began to realize what the game really went to me. It has taught me discipline, has given me an outlet to express myself, and has helped me create friendships that will last a lifetime.

Attending the US Sports Nike Basketball Camp will help me improve my game. This summer camp will teach me new moves and show me what I can improve on. I want to learn new drills that I would be able to take back home with me to make me a better player, and that I can share with my community. I also hope to meet new people and develop connections that will last for a long time. This summer camp could improve my game to a level that I have never imagined, and prepare me for life after high school.

A Note from Mrs. Kaiser, John's Teacher

John has a strong passion to play basketball and attend college. Basketball has been a way for John to connect with his peers and the community. Despite limited resources, John has not given up on his dream of going to college. He works hard to have good grades, volunteers at school and has actively explored colleges that will allow him to continue to play basketball. He is a great candidate for this program, and it will be a huge opportunity for him. This summer program will kick-start his future, and will give him the chance to build on the goals he has already set for himself.

On my way to Summer Camp!

I am so happy to know that I have been fully funded to attend the camp I wanted to go to this summer. Nike basketball camp will not only be fun, but will also make me a better player. I am excited and also scared to be able to stay away on my own. This summer will be one that I will never forget. Thank you for all the support!
