CAMDEN, NJ— The energy was high in the Mastery Charter Cramer Hill Upper School, where members of the Philadelphia 76ers Dunk Squad were dancing, flipping and spinning around as music blared from DJ Ghost’s speakers. A group of students sat and cheered as the stage was set for a special, very tall guest.
Mike Muscala of the Philadelphia 76ers visited Mastery Charter Cramer Hill Upper School on Friday to put on a basketball clinic for 20 Camden girls in seventh and eighth grade.
The clinic was part of the NBA’s “Her Time to Play” initiative, a new effort to inspire girls ages 7 to 14 to learn and play basketball in a positive and healthy way, and increase opportunities for women in coaching and athletic leadership.
