Every summer, Nike Basketball hosts the Jr Drew League, a four-week clinic for the youth, at King Drew Medical Magnet HS in Watts. Led by LaSandra “San” Dixon and Redemption coach Keion Kindred, the league teaches a weekly average of 50 boys and girls the fundamentals of the game from passing, dribbling and shooting to working together with others on team building. Jordan Bell (MHP) and Stanley Johnson (Tuff Crowd) also made special guest appearances to assist with the drills and hold a Q+A session with attendees on what it takes to take your game to the next level.
Over the course of a month, teams are selected and the top players will be selected to play in the Jr. Drew League All-Star Game at LA Southwest College (1600 W. Imperial Hwy, Los Angeles, CA 90047) during championship weekend. Check out the schedule below.
