Professional basketball player, Carlos Boozer talks with KCAW’s Cameron Clark about his upcoming basketball camp in Juneau.
It will be from July 31 to August 4, at Juneau-Douglas High School, Boozer’s alma mater. All skill levels are welcome.
Along with coaches and staff, Boozer will be helping players, ages 5-18, hone their skills with various drills and scrimmages throughout the camp.
There will be giveaways and other surprises throughout the week too.
“I had a lot of people help me along my journey,” Boozer said. “I want to be able to share what I learned with other kids and hopefully help them along their basketball journey.”
