Steve Nash coordinated a Steve Nash Basketball Camp at Espanola High School that happened on April 14-17 in Ontario, Canada. The camp helped many boys and girls between the ages of six and 14 learn some skills in the sport as well as getting a chance to break a sweat and have a lot of fun with the other kids and crew. Over 100 kids participated, and the cost for the three-day camp was a reasonable $95 per person. In addition to that, all the youngsters were happy to be fed lots of pizza and win lots of different prizes during the course of their camp.
The eight-time NBA All-Star has been playing basketball professionally for 19 years now and did two terms with the Phoenix Suns. In addition to having a career as a basketball player, he is also the co-owner of the professional MLS soccer team, the Vancouver Whitecaps. Nash was also named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2006, and played for Canada in two FIBA tournaments. The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player is a Canadian himself, although he was born in South Africa to British parents.
Nash worked together with the locals of Northern Ontario to host a fantastic basketball camp for local kids, as basketball has been growing in popularity lately over the last few years. The camp was a huge success and over 100 children got to have the sports experience of a lifetime.
