Andrew Nicholson of the Orlando Magic will host his first annual basketball camp July 14-18, catering to boys and girls ages 7-16.
Nicholson, who attended Father Goetz in Mississauga, Ontario, moved on to play NCAA basketball at St Bonaventure, and was selected by Orlando with the 19th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft. He is also part of the Canadian national team.
The Mississauga, Ontario product is a perfect example of a player that made it to the big leagues out of a Canadian high school.
“I want to inspire kids to reach their dreams. I was doubted by a lot of people in high school and college but kept working,” Nicholson told North Pole Hoops.
Players can expect to receive top notch training and tips to understand what it takes to succeed at the highest of levels.
In addition to his talent, the 6’9 skilled forward held a high academic standard, a perfect role model for young Canadian basketball players.
“I want as many people as possible to understand the importance of school and post secondary education,” said Nicholson.
The camp will take place at Father Goetz, Nicholson’s old stomping grounds.
“I wanted my camp to be held in the place that I graduated and where I starting taking basketball seriously.”
Nicholson will be in the trenches with campers all week, where they will have the opportunity to work with him, and ask questions.
Andrew Nicholson will also be put through his personal work out to demonstrate how NBA players prepare for competition.
