Former NBA player Mike “Stinger” Glenn held the 38th annual “Mike Glenn Basketball Camp for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing” athletes in Decatur. The weeklong camp started on June 18 and concluded on June 23 at Clairmont Presbyterian Church and the Church at Decatur Heights.
“Our goal as always is to provide our campers with a fun-filled week that could be considered the best week of their lives,” said Glenn.
The camp offered practice sessions, drills, scrimmages at Clairmont Presbyterian Church culminating with an All-Star game at the Decatur Recreation Center.
“Last summer at our 37th annual camp, we had the privilege and pleasure of welcoming campers and coaches from the Wisconsin School for the Deaf,” Glenn said. “I appreciate the extra effort of Coach Trulove and Coach Eldred who took it upon themselves to drive members of their team all the way to Georgia. I must also recognize and thank a former camp participant, Franklin Ash, who drove his nephew all the way from Michigan and gave him the opportunity to participate in the camp. Franklin also served as a proud coach as he reunited with staff members who remembered him from fifteen years ago.”
“We must also thank and welcome a new major sponsor, Youngevity Be the Change Foundation. We appreciate their extraordinary support and emphasis on nutrition and health. Their energy and presence underscores our efforts to enrich the lives of our campers on and off the courts,” Glenn said.
