SPECIAL FOR THE AJT //

From July 15 to 19, the MJCCA held its first-ever Atlanta Hawks Training Camp, where more than 150 campers ran through drills, practice plans, scrimmages and Hawks challenges. On the second-to-last day of the program, participants got a special treat: a visit from Hawks guard and Snellville native Louis Williams.

The kids loved meeting, talking to and getting basketball tips from Williams. And throughout the week, campers were rewarded for their hard work with Hawks gear such as signed basketballs, player’s shoes, sunglasses and much more.

The Atlanta Hawks Camp has been one of the most popular camps of the more than 100 MJCCA day camps held this year.
