I’m a Philly girl, I’m a Sixers fan, and this week I’m combining the two and getting it right, getting it tight at the Thaddeus Young Basketball Skills Camp at Girard College in Philadelphia. I went to Thaddeus’ third ever basketball skills camp to see what it was all about, and even got to play some one-on-one with the basketball pro. They didn’t try to take it easy on these young campers!  Young says they try to run the practices as similar to an actual NBA practice as possible. We did tough warmups and drills that tested our speed and reaction time just like Thaddeus and his teammates.

The drills weren’t the easiest for me, but I got to get some extra tips from Thaddeus and he sure does make it look easy. By the end of our practiced I managed to make a couple baskets!
