Lawrence School, Lovedale (Ooty) played host to a basketball skill development camp conducted by Dribble Academy. Over 100 kids worked on their fundamentals of ball handling, passing, shooting form and offensive and defensive principles.
“The players are out working each other, many of them get up at 5 am when it’s around 14 degrees but they are a no excuse team. Mr Kuldeep has given me this opportunity and I’m looking forward to conducting many more camps like this.” said coach Pradyut Voleti.
