Trail Blazers Press Release

Trial Blazers NBA FIT Spring Break Hoops Camp

  1. Written by: trailblazers

    Brandon Roy and Wesley Matthews provided emphatic exclamation points to the 2010-11 Trail Blazers Hoops Camp season at the first ever Trial Blazers NBA FIT Spring Break Hoops Camp, presented by Rebound Orthopedic and Neurosurgery, at PCC-Sylvania. More than 145 campers worked three days with huge coaching assists from Brandon and Wesley, learning to play basketball the Trail Blazers way.

    On the first day of camp, the campers were treated to a special surprise visit from Brian Agler, the head coach of the 2010 WNBA Champions, the Seattle Storm. Coach Agler, with the WNBA Championship Trophy, talked to the campers about the importance of being coachable and then ran some drills for the campers. After those drills, the camp ended that day with a full slate of scrimmages.

    Wesley visited the camp on day two. Just as he had done at the Holiday Hoops Camp, Wesley burst into the gymnasium and immediately took camp over. After making his way through the mass of campers wanting high fives and offering knuckle greetings, Wesley signed some autographs and demonstrated some of his skill arsenal for the campers. He then took on all comers in three-point shooting contests and in games of Bump. As is always the case in our Hoops Camps, the camp’s final day started with less energy than the others. Clearly tired but happy, the campers anticipation of Brandon’s visit kept their enthusiasm up. When Brandon arrived it was as if each camper had chugged a double espresso. The energy returned as Brandon walked in. The camp’s championship scrimmages were happening and Brandon got to view, first hand, the skills the campers had learned at camp. After a quick autograph break, Brandon participated in some drills with the campers, again seeing some of the campers’ new skills.

    As camp wrapped up, the Trail Blazers basketball outreach staff turned its full attention to Coach McMillan’s Nike Hoops Camp, July 25-29 at the Trail Blazers Practice Facility. That camp is filling, but there a few spaces left. Download a registration form
