Time to go to Basketball Camp
By Marcel
My name is Marcel and I am going to be telling you why you should go to basketball camp. It is fun and you can go to the NBA like other All-Star players and I play for a team called Network and I like this team because they teach you a lot and it is fun because this team is the best and it makes you better than what you can do.

I know that this is difficult because there is a lot of running and lots of push-ups, but this good for your health because it makes you stronger and better because you can get faster and faster.

At camp, you meet new friends and it is better because you have what it takes to be good and if you want to be like Kobe you can be the best player in the world.

When I was about 6 or 7 years old I started watching people play basketball. When my mom used to take me and my sister to the park, I used to see people on the basketball court playing against each other. When I was 6 I didn’t even know what a basketball was, I just use to see people bouncing a ball. 

When I was about 9-10 I found out what basketball was then I started watching people play basketball in the park, then I started bringing my own ball to the park to shoot around. I couldn’t make any shots because to me I was to short. But guess what, I was too short and I wasn’t strong enough.

So, I needed to keep practicing my shots so I can get better. I was practicing from 10 to now I’m 12 years old. I’ve been practicing. 

All that practice has paid off because I was on the basketball team when I was in 7th grade….Well, I’m still in 7th grade but not really because I graduated…… that’s not the point. When I get to 8th grade I’m going to make the team again. This summer I will keep practicing because when I go against different teams I want to be able to help my team go to the championship and when the championship game.  
My Basketball Team
By Marvin
My name is Marvin and today I would like to talk to you about my team. The name of my team is called Network and we have accomplished more than you could ever imagine by putting in the hard work that is needed in order to achieve greatness.

My team and I have practices on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. We win and we lose some of our games and that pushes us to do better and get better. When we lose we think about what we can do better as a team and when we win we celebrate as a team and get pizza which we love.

We can talk a lot sometimes and do a lot of running, pushups and practice our defensive and offensive plays.
