Ghana Boxing legend Professor Azumah Nelson has charged campers at the recently concluded 2013 Ghana Basketball and Leadership Cap to pick the positives derived from participating in this year’s event.
Enthusiastic players converge at the Penfield School in Accra for a grueling six-day camp which has earned rave reviews after its successful end.
The camp which provided a platform for young and boys and girls between 10-19 years was a well structured basketball learning experience that encouraged team participation and personal development.
The camp focused on improving campers skills emphasizing offense, defense, shooting and gam fundamentals.
It combined great basketball instruction with lots of fun, entertainment and, most importantly, thought the campers to respect each other, their coaches, the great game of basketball and life itself.
The Ghanaian iconic boxing figure, who is also an ardent basketball fan praised the attitude of the players and urged to thrive for excellence.
He cautioned them to desist from negative acts that could cripple their ambitions, advising them to inculcate discipline in all their endeavours.
“I am happy to see you my brothers and I’m glad that you have chosen this path. This is a great career avenue and I will urge you to keep your focus,” the former three-time former WBC Super featherweight champion said.
“Discipline is key to achieving success and I will therefore advise you to be discipline. There is no way that you can get to the top without being obedient.
“You have to take your training seriously and focus on what you want to achieve.
“I want to see you in the next couple of years commanding respect because of what you have achieved both on and off the court.
“To get to the top like I did during my boxing days, they only way out is to be discipline, focus, persevere and remain purposeful.
“I believe with such positive attribute the sky cannot be limit for you. Keep on keeping on and you will realize your dream.
