Basketball camp held in Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Dozens of local youth are sharpening their basketball skills with the help of a famous sports brand.

Nike is in town hosting its Boys and Girls Basketball.

The boys camp is taking place at Hewitt-Trussville High School, while the girls camp is taking place at Vestavia High School.

The experts at the camp are teaching the 9 to 15-year-olds different techniques of the sport, from signature moves of NBA players to how to act off the court.

The camp is sold out, but organizers say they will return to Homewood to open a camp specifically for high school students later in the summer.

That camp will be held from June 24 to June 28, 2013 and then from July 22 to July 26, 2013.
