GBA Newsflash – Coach’s Corner: July 2013
Michael Jordan Flight School
Dear Coach Gil,
On behalf of Michael Jordan, I wish to extend to you an invitation to work the 18th addition of his Flight School (basketball camp) and your second as a Commissioner. Michael will be in attendance for each day of the camp. Nobody spends more time at his camp than Michael. In essence “MJ” is the greatest. Thanks for your kind consideration of Michael’s request of your services. – Mark Raveling, Camp Coordinator
We want GBA to be represented once again at this year’s camp in Santa Barbara, CA in August. My dream has been to share my experiences with family, friends, and now GBA extended family as well. With this being said, I will return as a Commissioner at his camp once again this year and the invitation goes for every child signed up in GBA. Last year, we had 45 GBA members registered to participate at Michael Jordan’s basketball camp.
The advantages of me being one of his Commissioners should make our GBA members experience rewarding and comfortable. It eases the transition of being on a College campus, meeting and interacting with kids from various parts of the world, learning the fundamentals of basketball from some of the best coaches in the US, and being around the greatest basketball player in the history of the sport. What an awesome experience! Our goal is to take 50+ GBA kids this summer and give them an experience of a lifetime. GBA is always trying to show our members that we care and value them. We want to increase their opportunities, experiences and assets that will in turn make them successful in life and better citizens of our community.
– Jose Gil, GBA Executive Director
