Camping with the Globetrotters

Looking to improve your game this summer? You could do it by playing one-on-one against your friends every day or you could learn from basketball's most exciting team - the Harlem Globetrotters.

The Globetrotters are holding basketball camps across the United States all summer. You'll be able to become a better shooter, passer and maybe even a dunker by getting lessons from some of the most entertaining and creative players around. Every camp is led by a least two players and a coach from the Globetrotters. You won't be learning bogus drills from some fat chump up the street who thinks he knows basketball cuz he's got a pair of Air Jordans and a headband. The teachers at the Globetrotter camps are guys who seriously got game.

The week-long Globetrotter camps are open to boys and girls between the ages of six and 16. They include on-court drills, scrimmages and sessions on leadership and being a team player. Globetrotters guard Wun Vershers, who teaches at the camps, says, "It's way more than just basketball. We try to say it's a Harlem Globetrotters experience. We want kids to go away with something positive in life." Like how to positively kick your friends' butt on the court when you get back from camp.

All players get a camp t-shirt, a mini Globetrotters basketball, an autographed Globetrotters team photo and a camp picture. For more info on the costs and registering for the Globetrotters summer basketball camps, head to www.harlemglobetrotters.com.

    No, it's not really a sport, to be honest. It's an activity which is quite sexist in my eyes.

    The guys on my team are like brothers that I never had! I love all my cheer boys! They work just as hard as hard or sometimes they even work harder then any guy on a football team.

    Cheerleaders don't lift weights, We lift people.. We don't get tackled but we get punched and kicked by our teammates. We don't have an hour long game to prove our skills, we have minutes. When we get hurt we can't be taken out, we keep going.. Does this still seem not a sport?
