Coming to the Forrest County Multipurpose Center is the Tammy Brawner Professional Basketball Camp May 3, 2014.  This camp is open to youth ages 7-17 years old.  

Harlem Globetrotters' rookie T-Time Brawner was introduced to the game of basketball during summer rec camps, where she would play with the boys. Now she’s doing that as part of the world’s most famous basketball team, the Harlem Globetrotters.  Her love for the game propelled her to be an all-league player at Skyline High School in Oakland, California, where she led the team in scoring, assists and steals.  After high school she walked on at California State University, Northridge - but then, the lure of nearby Los Angelos compelled her to pursure acting and modeling.  During this time, she also earned an undergraduate degree in criminal justice.

She then fiugred out that she wanted to get back to basketball, so she later enrolled at Dominican University in San Rafael, where she became an all-conference selection and led the team in steals and was second on the squad in scoring, assists and field goal percentage her final season - all while also earning an MBA in global business management.

So come join in the fun and learn some wicked new skills from one of the best "T-Time" Brawner!  Camp fee is $25 for spectator/general admission, $75 for the camp only, $125 for camp, tshirt and autograph, $750 for group (limit 12 per group and includes tshirt and autograph).  Tickets and registration for the camp can be found at the Forrest County Multipurpose Center.
