As many of you are aware, the Young3 has been traveling around the United States this summer with a few very important goals in mind. Most important to us is knowing we are giving back to communities and its youth. We want to provide these youngsters with incredible life lessons and teachings as well as basketball skills courtesy of our fantastic coaching staff. We’ve also had our eyes on basketball players at our various camps who possess talent that has them way ahead of other kids their age. Thus, the Young3 All-Team was born. This article highlights the hard working kids of Charlotte, Birmingham, Providence, Kansas City, and Salt Lake City. We’ve chosen multiple players from each camp to represent the Young3 name. President of the Young3, Jerome Williams had this to say, “The Young3 All-Tournament team represents the best of the best all over the country. When you have high level coaches coming from NBA, WNBA and the Harlem Globetrotters, it’s easy to see how some of these kids can potentially be seen in the future on the next level if they work hard.” Without further ado here are your Young3 All-Team Summer Stars from the first half of the Young3 tour.
