WNBA star Kelsey Griffin made an appearance at the a day camp organized by Alaska Lady Hoops at the AT&T Sports Center in Palmer on Saturday, August 30, 2014. During the three hour camp Griffin ran through drills with the players, taught them the finer points of the game, and provided some words of wisdom and inspiration.
Basketball has taken Griffin all over the world, and she is grateful for all the opportunities that she has been given as a result of her career. She wanted to use her own experiences as motivation for the girls to go after their own dreams.
“I was floating in the Dead Sea once, and I had just ridden a camel, and I though, wow, basketball took me there,” said Griffin. “No way I would have been there without basketball. Israel, Krakow, and Sydney Harbor, all of that is basketball. As a little girl in Eagle River, I never imagined seeing those things.”
Griffin is a 6’2 power forward for the Connecticut Sun, and just finished her fifth WNBA season. She holds the distinction as being the only women’s pro basketball player from Alaska. She was the 3rd overall pick in the 2010 WNBA Draft, and hopes to remain in Connecticut for the remainder of her career.
