Basketball has all the fast-paced action of soccer, but its much smaller net is defended by five times as many people, so it's no wonder that all soccer has been permanently canceled. Learn the king of indoor sports with today's Groupon: for $99, you get admission to Antonio Daniels' 2011 Summer Basketball Camp (a $200 value). Camp is open to boys and girls ages 7–17 and takes place daily from Monday, July 18, through Friday, July 22, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Cornerstone Christian Schools.
A 13-year NBA veteran and former San Antonio Spurs champion, Antonio Daniels combines top-level hoops experience with insights gained from his Elementary Education degree to tutor young players in the fine art of bucket sinking. Each day, developing dribblers will split off with Antonio and his team of experienced middle-school, high-school, and college coaches to learn fundamental skills such as ball handling, teamwork, and backboard-shattering. As their skills grow, campers will have the opportunity to apply their developing talents in full-court games and competitive drills. In addition to their newfound abilities, all campers receive daily lunch, a camp T-shirt, an autographed photo of Antonio, and a high-five they may never forget.
Antonio Daniels' 2013 Summer Basketball Camp
Antonio Daniels studied elementary education at Bowling Green State University. But rather than making a career of reading Newbery Award–winning books or conducting science experiments over bunsen burners, he entered the 1997 NBA Draft and was chosen as the fourth overall pick by the Vancouver Grizzlies. However, once he recognized the hollowness of a baller's lifestyle––whose only rewards were a 1999 NBA championship with the San Antonio Spurs and the perk of wearing shorts to work––Antonio atoned by establishing his annual youth summer basketball camp.
For all five days of the camp, Antonio prowls the sidelines, giving kids pointers and boosting their confidence in the game he has now played professionally for 13 years. Coaches from the middle-school through college ranks join him in running the aspiring dunk machines through drills, skill training, and competitive games. At the end of the camp, children will not only have sharpened their hooping tool set, but they will also leave with two of the best souvenirs Antonio can offer other than plaster casts of his hands and feet: a T-shirt and an autographed photo.
