The center player for the LA Lakers will guide the camp to teach the skills and fundamentals of shooting, dribbling, rebounding, passing and defense; allowing athletes to learn, train, and play like a pro!
JaVale, originally from Michigan, attended two high schools there before transferring to Hales Franciscan High School in Chicago. Attending the University of Nevada, he played starting center and after his sophomore year, began to declare for the 2008 NBA draft. Throughout his career on six different NBA teams, JaVale helped his teams to two NBA championships, in addition to setting game records and a Guinness World Record for using three balls at one time in a dunk contest.
JaVale owes much of his success to his athletic development as a youth. By learning the skills, knowledge, and sportsmanship needed to be successful in basketball, he was able to develop his talents to an elite level that eventually lead to a career and immense success as a professional basketball player.
At the camp, teams will have knowledgeable coaches and counselors available, who have collegiate and/or professional basketball experience. The camp will focus on helping kids to be well-rounded players by teaching them the fundamentals to for what it takes to become elite athletes. JaVale will be present each day of camp to interact with the campers and share his championship experience.

JaVale will conduct group speaking sessions, interact with campers individually, and referee random games from time to time. Every camper will receive 1 signed autograph from JaVale McGee. There will be no cameras allowed during an autograph session. We thank you for your consideration in this matter.
