June 23, 2014 NFL star, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and his father, Stanley Cromartie, will hold their annual Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Foundation (DRC Foundation) Summer Basketball Camp at the Palmetto Boys & Girls Club starting this Wednesday. The Summer Basketball Camp, a tradition that Stanley Cromartie started 21 years ago, will run from June 25th through June 27th.
The NFL Cornerback and the DRC Foundation host this free camp for the youth of Manatee County every summer. The camp focuses on sportsmanship, teamwork, and having a positive attitude. In addition, there will be an awards ceremony to recognize the efforts of the kids and the foundation’s sponsors for their generous support.
The basketball camp will run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day at the Palmetto Boys & Girls Club located at 1600 10th Street West in Palmetto. Members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County and students from area high schools will be participating in the three day camp. Limited space is still available and registration will take place on Wednesday at 8 a.m., prior to the start of camp.
