Inspiring Young Athletes with Lakers Magic

PUBLISHED JULY 26, 2017

LA Lakers star Jordan Clarkson recently hosted the 2017 Nike JC6 Summer Basketball Camp with a surprise visit from NBA Hall of Famer and LA Lakers President Magic Johnson.

Sponsored by East West Bank for two years in a row, the annual camp was held at the Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA)’s Lafayette Recreation Center. Over 100 kids, aged 5-17, from local schools and communities attended the three-day camp to learn fundamental basketball skills from their favorite player.

The bank’s support offered 50 scholarships to students from local under-served communities to participate in the camp free of charge. Participating students were from partner nonprofit organizations including: Los Angeles Urban League, St. Didacus School, Asian Youth Center, Valley Venom Basketball, and Blaze Basketball.

We are proud to support a camp that is providing an opportunity for students to become well-rounded individuals and develop important life skills.
