We started hosting our free youth basketball camp in 2004. The pandemic forced us to cancel it the past few years but we’re back at it with the same mission of teaching kids not only how to play the game of basketball but also to help them build leadership and team skills while having fun.
“Being able to share some experiences of not only the game basketball but the game of life,” Ferguson said. “The joy on their faces and how they enjoy the clinic, it makes me feel good.”
Giving back to the Lansing community that gave Dez so much to him while also teaching kids lessons on and off the court is a win-win.
“We’ve had kids that started up in our camp that now have kids that attend the camp, so for us to be doing this since 2004 and for the parents and the kids to enjoy it, it means the world to us,” Dez said.
