"That camp changed how I felt about basketball and my future. It was the turning point in my life." That's how Michael Jordan summed up his experience at Five-Star Basketball, the premier hoops camp founded by Howard Garfinkel and Will Klein in 1966. In addition to Jordan, the alumni list is studded with stars like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and coaches such as Chuck Daly. In total, more than 500 NBA players have come to Five-Star to refine their basketball talent.
Today, Five-Star continues its tradition of elite basketball training for future college and professional basketball players. Open to boys and girls aged 10?18, the camp's coaches teach young players the importance of possessing basketball fundamentals, being in shape, and having a strong head on their shoulders. Players have many opportunities to show off their skills, such as demonstrating a finely tuned crossover dribble during Five-Star's highly competitive pickup games or eating the most orange slices at lunchtime.
Thousands upon thousands of wild mustangs roam the public lands in America's West, living independent of humans and their delicious salt licks. However, when herds become overpopulated or threatened, the Bureau of Land Management steps in to save these horses. The untamed mustangs require extensive training and care before they can ride trails. That's where The Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover's trainers come in. Each year, they adopt these wild horses, train them for only 120 days, and enter them into competitions across the country.
At each Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover event, judges award hundreds of thousands of dollars to the best trainers and their horses as they ride their mustangs and perform spectacular feats. However, despite the money and the crowd's applause, the primary goal of these events remains mustang preservation; since its founding in 2007, The Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover has facilitated the adoption of more than 3,300 American mustangs.
