Thank you WNEM for the coverage

“When you see the kids at the beginning, some of them are lacking confidence, they’re a little bit shy, a little unsure. As the camp goes on, they start to have fun, they make new friends, they’re high-fiving, low-fiving and encouraging each other,” McCormick said.

The basketball camp isn’t just about shooting hoops. The Michigan Elite 25 program aims to do more.

“We talk about things like having a great handshake and a big smile when you meet somebody. We talk about how important it is to avoid bullying… those are all important lessons that we emphasize,” McCormick said.
