2018 Basketball Skills Camp & Movie Screening
Sponsored by Keifer Sykes’ Free 10 Foundation and featuring the documentary “Chi-Town,” starring Keifer Sykes.
Keifer Sykes’ Free 10 Foundation and Keifer Sykes, teamed up with Golden State Warriors forward Alfonzo McKinnie, for the 2018 Basketball Skills Camp. A great group of coaches and volunteers were on hand to guide athletes through basketball skills, drills and team play.
Campers were also treated to a special screening of the award-winning documentary movie Chi-Town, starring Keifer Sykes, and directed by Nick Budabin. Chi-Town follows Keifer Sykes on his meteoric rise from Marshall High School on Chicago’s West Side to his improbable shot at the NBA. Keifer’s focus on his goal and his never-wavering support for his community are inspirations. This is an intimate, raw, surprising and unique behind the scenes look at a true champion — and what it really takes to make it.
The movie’s message was well-received by the group, all of whom were growing up under similar situations as Keifer had experienced. The messages of perseverance and responsibility are important to Keifer, and served to motivate the group!
