It has been an incredible experience here in Barbados, as we returned to team up with NextGeneration for the 2018 Summer Basketball Development Clinic. We are blessed to receive such wonderful support from the Jordan Brand and the absolutely stunning Hilton Barbados resort this week. It has been rewarding to witness the growth in character and skill amongst so many athletes during our time on the island and truly look forward to continuing this program on a greater scale. The aim is to emphasize the motto of TrueChamps being true character and champion mindset in all you set out to do and the core focus is always to create memorable opportunities and experiences for the youth we have the ability to impact. Josh Cardoza the founder of True Champs is quoted as saying “I am beyond grateful to my team of professionals (sports chiropractors Dr. Joel Kerr and Dr. Chad Carter, Coaches/ Skill Trainers Jerome Smith, George Thomas and Zahir Motara, NBA International scout for the Dallas Mavericks Lisandro Miranda, Videographer Ryan Malcolm- Campbell, etc.) who have committed their genuine time and energy to the success of this event. This week has been a special experience where we were able to assist with the development of youth basketball in Barbados and engage in meaningful work to build a stronger basketball culture as players work to improve at an earlier age. There is more work to be done and I am confident that as we continue our collaborations with local and global supports, we will soon reach a wider audience and be able to accomplish an even greater impact.”
