Danny Green of the San Antonio Spurs will be hosting Team Green Basketball Academy at Floral Park Memorial High School from July 8 to 11.The camp is open to children of all skill levels ages 5-18. The camp fee is $250, which includes a t-shirt, lunch, drawstring backpack, and prizes during contests.
Green attended high school at St. Mary’s where he lead them to a #1 national ranking, and was also selected a McDonalds All-American. Danny played his collegiate ball at the University of North Carolina. During the 2008-2009 season, Green led the Tar Heels to a national championship over Michigan State.
Green is now heralded as the winningest player at UNC, with 123 career victories in games he played in. One of the most notable aspects of his game is his versatility.
Green is the only Tar Heel ever to have 1,000 points (1,368), 500 rebounds (590), 200 assists (256), 100 blocks (155) and 100 steals (160). He is now a starter for the Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs.
“I’m really excited to host a camp in Floral Park. I’m starting to build a strong relationship with Floral Park, from hosting a successful camp there last year and playing in the Malone Mulhall Benefit Game in the past, it’s a great town to work with,” said Green.
“Team Green Basketball Academy is the best camp I’ve ever attended. Being able to learn from Danny and the coaches/trainers who have worked with other NBA players was so cool. I learned so much” said Andrew Visciglia, current sixth-grader at Floral Park-Bellerose School who attended Team Green Basketball Academy last year.
