Those who register will be automatically entered into a drawing for prizes and to receive one free training session with Travis.

Hansen, along with a distinguished group of volunteer coaches, will provide camp participants with fundamental basketball skills necessary to become an effective basketball player. In addition, the coaches will share some of their personal experiences that can help the youth in making positive decisions in life.

During the camp’s second day, all participants will join the Little Heroes Foundation that Hansen founded, to help assemble supply kits for children their age living in the Mana village of Mali, West Africa. These children will be attending the newly constructed Little Heroes Academy in the fall. Campers and their families are encouraged to donate school supplies or backpacks, flip flops, packaged toothbrushes and toothpaste for the kits.
