INDIAN TRAIL – Dallas Mavericks star Seth Curry will return to the region to host a developmental basketball camp for area youth.
The one-day camp takes place Aug. 3 at Carolina Courts in Indian Trail. The camp will be available to youth ages 7 to 16. It costs $125. Register in advance at www.eventbrite.com.
The camp will offer children a chance to work out with Curry while focusing on basketball development along with life skills. Curry hopes to leave a positive impact on the community where he was raised.
“My family grew up here,” Curry said. “Me and my brother played on courts like this as we watched our dad play on the big courts. We were raised on values that taught us to never forget where we came from and to make sure we are always giving back to the community.”
Seth and his older brother, Stephen, grew up watching their father, Dell Curry, become one of the Charlotte Hornets’ greatest players. He graduated from Charlotte Christian School in 2008, earning all-conference, all-state and all-American honors.
“I remember being young and loving when I would get to shoot around with the NBA guys and soak in tips and dream of one day being in their shoes,” Curry said. “That’s what I’m trying to do for these kids, that excitement and motivation is what I hope they feel when they leave my camp.”
Curry, 28, reportedly signed a four-year $24 million contract with the Dallas Mavericks this summer.
