On July 16, 2016, LWH launched OWN THE COURT: A Basketball Camp for Girls to empower the next generation of Ladies Who Hoop. OTC camp participants enjoyed fun–filled instructional sessions, featuring an all–female coaching staff, participant awards and special guest speakers, including professional basketball player, actress and model, Niki Avery, who posed with camp participants at a special awards ceremony (above). The free camp was held on Saturday afternoons through August 20th at Sol Bloom Playground in partnership with the Goddard Riverside Community Center, and concluded with an exhibition game where participants showed off their new skills during the LWH Classic Tournament Championship on August 27th.
