Basketball and laughs coming to New York

June 22, 2013 by  

Kids in New York are gearing up for a week of sporting fun with the 2013 Tobias Harris School of Business Basketball Camp starting on Monday.

The camp, which will be held between June 24 and 28 at Half Hollow Hills High School near Deer Park, will give the children the opportunity to improve on their ball skills.

Campers of all playing levels are welcome and will learn how to pass, handle the ball, rebound, and shoot. There will also be help with footwork, teamwork, and defensive skills. There will be additional workshops on life goals, self-esteem and careers.

The man behind the camp, Tobias Harris, is a former student of the school who went on to attend the University of Tennessee. He then played professionally in the NBA with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Orlando Magic.

Campers will receive a t-shirt, along with daily awards and prizes. Camp hours are 8:30am – 3:00pm Monday – Friday. Registration costs $295 for the week.

Also taking place in the coming weeks in nearby Hauppage, is the Sunday Comics. On June 30, three of Long Island’s best comedians will perform for joke fans. The night, which starts at 7.30pm, will see routines from Rich Walker, Eric Haft and Stevie GB. Walker is a veteran of the scene and has even performed with such acts as Ray Romano, Dom Irrera and Kevin James.

No doubt both of the New York events have been promoted with the help of nearby printing companies. Poster printing, for example, is an excellent way to raise awareness of all kinds of events, from basketball camps to comedy performances.
