NBA Superstar and champion of the San Antonio Spurs Danny Green will be hosting Team Green Basketball Academy at Floral Park Memorial High School from July 7- July 10. The camp is open to children of all skill levels ages 5-18. The camp fee is $250 which includes a t-shirt, lunch, drawstring backpack, and prizes during contests.
Green attended high school at St. Mary’s where he lead them to a #1 national ranking, and was also selected a McDonalds All-American. Danny played his collegiate ball at the University of North Carolina. During the 2008-2009 season, Danny led the Tar Heels to a national championship over Michigan State. Danny is now heralded as the winningest player at UNC, with 123 career victories in games he played in. One of the most notable aspects of his game is his versatility. Green is the only Tar Heel ever to have 1,000 points (1,368), 500 rebounds (590), 200 assists (256), 100 blocks (155) and 100 steals (160).
Green has just finished up a very special season with the San Antonio Spurs, where he helped them capture their fifth NBA title.  Green, along with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobli defeated the Heat in 5 games by an average of 17 points, the highest average in NBA history, leaving some people to call them the greatest team of all time.

“I’m really excited to host a camp in Floral Park. I’m starting to build a strong relationship with Floral Park, from hosting a successful camp there the past few years and playing in the Malone Mulhall Benefit Game in the past, it’s a great town to work with.” said Danny Green. “Team Green Basketball Academy is the best camp I’ve ever attended. Being able to learn from Danny and the coaches/trainers who have worked with other NBA players was so cool. I learned so much” said
Andrew Visciglia, current 7th grader at FPBS who attended Team Green Basketball Academy last year.
The camp is limited to the first 80 registrants and is based on a first-come, first-serve basis so register quickly. To register: send checks or money order payable to Team Green at P.O. Box 6391 N. Babylon, NY 11704. For all questions, contact Danny Green Sr. at CoachDRG2000@yahoo.com.
