The North Bay Triangle basketball camp

"On Sunday January 15, the North Bay Triangle basketball camp took place at American Canyon High School (American Canyon, CA). The camp featured ages 8-14, with kids coming from many different schools and AAU teams, such as the Vallejo Knights, Nor-Cal Aces, Nor-Cal Power, Vallejo Generals and more. The camp also featured Team Rampage Varsity Elite Head Coach Brandon Bracy, who was the Head Trainer of the camp. With good training from Coach Bracy, up-close camera action from Mark "Fat Mark" Insixiengmay, and over 30 kids in attendance, the North Bay Triangle Camp was a great turnout.

Camp Director Antonio Hodges stated, "We are thrilled to have Coach Bracy as the head trainer of the camp. The kids and parents really enjoyed him, and he is dedicated to making everybody better." With many kids coming from different AAU programs, the camp was extremely competitive as the kids were able to play games with each other at the end. The mother of Vallejo Knights guard Juwelle Jack, Rhea Macam-Jack said, "I have been supporting our son Juwelle for five years as an AAU basketball player, and this basketball camp is the best so far". Many other parents praised the camp and Coach Bracy's style of teaching drills, and explaining how the drills translates into the game.

The next North Bay Triangle Basketball Camp will take place on May 7th, at American Canyon High School."
