LAUREN JACKSON ONE-DAY BASKETBALL CAMPS

Calling all girls basketball players ages 13-18! It's your turn to learn to play like a pro and be a part of history! Join Lauren Jackson at her 2010 inaugural Lauren Jackson One-Day Basketball Camps. The four unique one-day camps feature top-notch instruction, camp t-shirts and, of course, an appearance by two-time WNBA MVP Lauren Jackson. You'll improve your skills through drills, practices and a scrimmage game, and also hear tips straight from Lauren herself.

Since the age of 19, Lauren Jackson has been touted as the next great WNBA star. In the 2000 Olympics, played in Sydney, Jackson starred for the Australian National Team, averaging 15.9 points and 8.4 rebounds as Australia earned silver. The following year, the Seattle Storm made Jackson the top pick of the WNBA Draft. After two seasons where she made the All-Star team, Jackson poured it on in 2003, winning MVP and leading the WNBA in scoring at 21.2 points per game. Jackson followed it up with two more All-WNBA First Team honors and back-to-back runner-up finishes in MVP voting before winning MVP again in 2007. Jackson also led Australia to two more silver medals with outstanding performances in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics.

Jackson is the youngest and fastest player in WNBA history to score 3,000 and 4,000 career points and was voted to the WNBA's All-Decade Team. Lauren is considered to be the world’s best women basketball player. Named to the WNBA All-Defensive First Team in 2009, Jackson compiled 182 total rebounds (7.0 rpg), 134 total defensive rebounds (5.2 drpg) and 45 total blocks (1.5 bpg) in 26 games for the Storm during the 2009 season.
