This upcoming June, Christian Laettner will be holding a basketball camp at Walker-Hackensack-Akeley School District and will focus on fundamentals such as ball handling, movement without the ball, and team concepts. The camp will host ages ranging from eight year olds to eighteen year olds and the attendees will receive a t-shirt on the first day.
Christian Laettner is an Angola, New York native who developed his competitive drive from his brother’s bullying as a kid and played his high school basketball at private Nichols School. Laettner had to work as a janitor to supplement the cost of the private school that he led to two state titles. Laettner was a very sought after recruit and decided to play his college ball at Duke University. During his time at Duke, Laettner won an amazing 21 games in the NCAA tournament that included back to back national titles during his junior and senior season. His college career is regarded as one of if the not the best college basketball careers in history as he averaged nearly 17 points, 8 rebounds, and nearly 50 percent on three point shooting while also providing many clutch shots during his career. Laettner also holds multiple NCAA tournament records such as most points, free throws made and attempted, games won, and games played. Laettner was also the only non NBA player named to the highly touted 1992 Olympic Dream Team featuring Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird. Laettner was drafted third overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 1992 NBA Draft and played 13 years in the National Basketball Association including stints with six teams, was traded six times, and was never with a team for longer than three years. Laettner has since begun operating many youth training camps and also served as a coach in the NBA’s developmental league.
This upcoming June, Christian Laettner will hold a basketball camp at Walker-Hackensack-Ackley School District. The camp should have a great turnout as Laettner’s camps generally do. The camp will teach attendees the fundamentals of the game and they will learn from one of if not the greatest college basketball players of all time.
