Argrett giving back
Published 12:00 am Monday, August 18, 2014
Damien Argrett (South Rowan), co-founder of Best of Both Worlds Basketball Training, recently held his 4th Annual Summer Jam Basketball Clinic in Mooresville at Benchwarmers Sports Complex.
Argrett had players once again donate school supplies as part of the fee for camp, and they did a tremendous job of doing so.
The players not only learned skills to help them on their journey to becoming better basketball players, they learned life skills by understanding the importance of giving back to others as well.
Argrett gave away some of the supplies to a few kids in the area that he knew needed them, but more supplies are still available at Benchwarmers Sports Complex for kids that need them on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact Argrett at 704-495-9565.
