Just this past week, NBA superstar Dwyane Wade hosted his 3 day All-Star basketball camp which played host to over 670 kids at Nova Southeastern University. Youth athletes from as far France traveled to South Florida to get a chance to be on the same court with one of the NBA’s elite guards.
D. Wade did not disappoint as he challenged camp participants not only to become better basketball players, but to become a better person off the court. D. Wade also issued challenges on the court, blocking shots, and draining 3 pointers was all in fun throughout the exciting 3 day camp.
Also, for the first time ever, D. Wade teamed up with Katina Taylor, wife of NFL All Pro Jason Taylor for the inaugural D. Wade All-Star Cheer & Dance Camp Powered by Camp Katina – Presented by Millennium Laser Eye Centers.
More than 50 girls, ages 5-14, participated in the dance & cheer camp, including 15 who were scholarshipped in from the Urban League of Broward County. Under direction of Katina Taylor, the camp gave the girls the opportunity to learn top-notch cheer & chants, participate in interactive games, cheer on the D. Wade basketball campers and perform a fast paced, high energy dance routine in front all the camp participants, over 500 parents and South Florida sports icons Jason Taylor and of course, Dwyane Wade!
With the addition of the cheer and dance camp this year, of course this could only mean a showdown on the court between Katina Taylor, and D. Wade. The two participated in a game of shootout beyond the 3 point line, and it was a lot closer than you would think. Wade drained an amazing half court shot only seconds before Katina nailed a 3-pointer of her own.
Also, Generation Nexxt joined the D. Wade All-Star Basketball camp this year, adding a sports center element to the camp. Generation Nexxt provided D. Wade campers with a real NBA experience, interviewing camp participants on camera as if they were in the NBA, hosting an exclusive D. Wade highlight DVD from a custom D. Wade broadcasting desk, and so much more.
The D. Wade All-Star basketball and dance & cheer camp will be an experience that hundreds of youth athletes will never forget; great coaching, intense instructional drills, exciting contest, and tons of fun. If you missed it this year, be sure to get on the court with D. Wade and cheer it up with Katina Taylor next year at one of the nation’s best basketball, cheer & dance camps!
