Law firm again sponsors basketball camp for student athletes
Once again, Elk & Elk proudly sponsored this year’s Kyrie Irving Basketball ProCamp. During the two-day event, student athletes were treated to professional instruction by Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving and some of the area's top high school and college coaches.
From July 19-20, boys and girls in grades 1 -12 received a fun and educational experience at the Independence High School field house. To provide more individualized coaching, the student athletes were divided into small groups, which focused on teamwork and basketball fundamentals.
During the camp, Irving also gave daily talks highlighting the finer points of the game of basketball and beyond. The winner of the 2012 NBA Rookie of the Year award, Irving has emerged as one of the league’s top point guards. A two-time NBA All-Star and winner of the 2013 Three-Point Shootout Contest, Irving went on to win the All-Star MVP award in 2014.
