According to Towson Tigers website, former Tiger basketball standout and current NBA player Gary Neal will be holding the first Gary Neal Basketball Camp at Aberdeen High School from August 1-4.
The camp is open to youngsters aged 8 to 14 years old.
The camp’s mission is developing fundamental basketball skills. Campers learn ball handling, triple threat, post moves, rebounding, court spacing, defensive keys, team offense and defense.
Neal, a former Aberdeen High standout, led Aberdeen High School to a 21-4 record and a Maryland State Class A championship in his junior year scoring the game winning basket.
An All-Colonial Athletic Association selection at Towson University, he was one of the leading scorers in NCAA Division I as a senior.
He was also the leading scorer in the Italian League in 2009-2010 and just completed an outstanding rookie season with the San Antonio Spurs.
He was named to the NBA’s All-Rookie first team despite being undrafted.

This is a great way to spend the summer while the lockout is still in place.
Neal can help young kids to develop their basketball skills and at the same time, giving back to his community while keeping himself in basketball shape.
