ABOUT THE CONTEST
Bermuda Sun Online has teamed up with Dibia Athletic to present a photo contest open to the public via the Bermuda Sun Facebook Page. Participants are asked to post photos that show their child’s “love of basketball”. The public will then have an opportunity to vote for the pictures it likes best.
The two top vote getters will win free entry into the James Jones/Dibia Athletic Basketball Camp August 6-10, 2012, at Sandy’s 360, courtesy of the Bermuda Sun Online and Dibia Athletic.
The camp’s host is Miami Heat player and NBA 3-Point Champion James Jones, who is playing in the 2012 NBA Finals. Just a month after competing for professional basketball’s biggest prize, James Jones will be in Bermuda teaching an elite skills basketball camp to our young people. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
