CP3 To Hold Youth Basketball Camp

NBA All-Star, Olympic gold medalist and former Demon Deacon Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets has announced that he will be holding a youth basketball camp for boys and girls ages 8-16 from August 11-14, 2009 at the Southeast Gateway YWCA in Winston-Salem. The camp will run daily from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm with an early departure on Friday at 1:00 pm. It is limited to the first 150 kids.

The CP3 Youth Camp seeks to develop a positive all-around athlete on and off the court, giving campers an opportunity to fully realize their potential in an enriching, fun, and safe environment – an environment that encourages teamwork, gamesmanship, self-confidence, respect, and dedication to the game of basketball. The CP3 Youth Camp is committed to the development of fundamental skills and technique enhancement.

In only his first four years in the league, Paul has already been named a two-time NBA All-Star, All-NBA First Team selection, NBA All-Defensive First Team member, NBA Rookie of the Year and a gold medalist with the 2008 US Olympic team. Off the court, he has also made his mark in the New Orleans and Winston-Salem communities through his CP3 Foundation. The CP3 Foundation has refurbished basketball courts at the Rupert Bell Recreation Center, established the Nathaniel Jones Scholarship Fund in memory of his late grandfather and has benefited numerous other charities in Forsyth County.

The camp is open to boys and girls ages 8-16 and will cost $250.00 per camper, which includes a Jordan Brand t-shirt, photo with Chris Paul and instruction from some of the top coaches.

Following the Youth Camp, Chris will also be holding his second annual CP3 Elite Guard Camp from August 14-16. The Elite Guard Camp will consist of the top 40 high school point guards from around the country, including 20 select players from his home state of North Carolina. The top 15 collegiate point guards from around the country will also be on-hand as counselors. The camp will allow the future stars of tomorrow to finish off their summer competing against the best and learning from some of the games best instructors.
