feature two-part series on the Kids Venice Basketball League (KVBL)
which hosts the Natural Leaders Camp, a free nine week summer day camp
Kids Venice Basketball League is a part of the
Venice Basketball League, an adult league that plays in the magnificent
Venice district of Los Angeles, California USA and features some of the
best street basketball players in the world.
Jon Nash and Nick
Ansom, who are the founders of the Venice Basketball League, created
KVBL for children of all socio-economic backgrounds from the greater
Los Angeles area.
The Natural Leaders Camp provides leadership
training, teaches healthy lifestyles, and raises the environmental
awareness of the children. In addition, participants learn yoga from
famous instructors such as Rainbeau Mars, pick up basketball tips from
some of the best players in Venice Basketball League,
receive fitness training from renowned vegan body builders, and eat delicious organic raw vegan food.
The many constructive activities provided at the Natural Leaders Camp
are in ways a reflection of the things Mr. Nash wishes he had been
exposed to when he was a child.
It was just basically what I would want to do when I was a kid living
in Compton (California, USA), living in Watts (California, USA), in the
hot sun, not being able to do anything.
So I think I want to come
to the beach; I want to play basketball. I would love to have known
what yoga was; I didn't know what yoga was. . I would have loved to
know what raw food was and organic food was.
And I would have loved to know about how to clean up the environment and how to plant trees.
