Coach Larry ‘Gator’ Rivers, former legendary Harlem Globetrotter, will introduce the Harambee Globecroppers at a benefit basketball game on Friday, June 29 at the JEA on Abercorn. His ‘Point Guard Basketball Camp’ for boys and girls ages 13-18, will run from Monday, June 25-29. Learning the posture of a point guard from all positions on the basketball court is the major goal of this special basketball camp.
The Harambee Globecroppers are the youth health and fitness arm of the Harambee Farm. Harambee Farm coordinator Coach Ed Daniels, is excited about involving the Globecroppers in a hand’s-on approach to the art of gardening. The team will be responsible for cultivating and maintaining the community garden at the St. Pius and Shuman Harambee Farms.
Sowing Seeds, a community youth program, will also be involved in promoting gardening with an emphasis on planting vegetables along with fruit trees at home in front and backyards.
Pre-registration for the Camp will be held on Thursday, June 21 from 5 – 7 pm at the JEA 5111 Abercorn St. Savannah, GA 31405. Registration is encouraged to assure your space in the Camp as there are limited reserved spaces.
