Harlem Globetrotters Drills and Skills Clinic: What will your nickname be?

Dear Students,

I won a contest! It was a great contest too, sponsored by Macaroni Kid Gilbert — an afternoon with the Harlem Globetrotters in a basketball skills clinic¬†in downtown Phoenix.

I didn’t really win it, you have to be between the ages of 6 and 12 to participate. So I gave my prize to my son Brady. I knew 2 Globetrotters were teaching the clinic. I wondered who he would meet?

Turns out his clinic was led by TNT and Slick, the 2 best Globetrotters in the world.

Six must be Slick’s lucky number. He is 6 feet 6 inches tall and he started playing basketball when he was 6 years old.

They call her TNT because she is explosive! Fatima “TNT” Maddox is the 9th women to play for the Globetrotters. She is a fan favorite, we were so excited that she is leading the Phoenix clinic.

Brady spent the afternoon:

  • shooting, dribbling, passing drills
  • Scrimmages, games, ball handling
  • learning the Magic Circle, making up cool moves

As a participant, he was given these awesome extras:

  • Complimentary ticket voucher to the HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS 2013 Tour
  • Autograph & photograph
  • Official HARLEM GLOBETROTTER Nickname–his was “Secret Weapon”, Signature Move and Junior Phenom Graduation Certificate

Mr. Dreamy, Slick, Secret Weapon and TNT

Thanks for an incredible, memory filled day with the ultimate Ambassadors of Goodwill, the Harlem Globetrotters! I encourage you to wander over to Macaroni Kids page and see what contest you might win or fun things you can do this summer. I told one San Tan Student about the page, and he won a week long tennis clinic!!  Thanks Macaroni Kid!
