After getting home from Bahamas we were off to the Sparta Classic Basketball Tournament at Michigan State. Transway met up with the Indiana G3 Hoosiers, a National (USA) Ranked #2 team. It was an exciting game to say the least. The basketball rules are very different in the United States. I believe it certainly develops better players and refereeing to a much more elite level.Transway Basketball | Spartan Classic Basketball Tournament | Michigan State University, USA | Major Atom Girls | March 8th-10th, 2013 [View Images!]
The March break began with a tournament in Jordan, Ontario. The Dundas Select team played very well and had a lot of fun in Niagara Falls at the hotel...Not much sleep-FUN-FUN-FUN! I really enjoyed meeting Barry from Digital Sports Photography. DSP was shooting the tournament and selling prints/cd of the action. They did a great job and I look forward to working with Barry,DSP in the future.

David Johnson (DJ) ran his 2013 March Break Elite Basketball Camp at Annunciation Catholic School, Hamilton-ON. The camp was very inspiring with daily quotes to ponder, a commemorative t-shirt fund in honour of Sydney Wood, intense strength & conditioning training, advance skill assessment and motivational coaching. It was wonderful to see the camaraderie among athletes from all teams come together.
Westcott Lighting recently awarded me with the 2400-watt 2-Light Spiderlite TD6 Perfect Portrait Kit & Icelight. I wanted to make my first project memorable and help pass it forward. The kids at the David Johnson March Break Camp have a passion for basketball. My compassion for Sydney has made me value these young years forever. On the last day of camp I did basketball sport portraits for all the athletes. I am very happy with the Westcott Pro Lighting results and plan to do a review in the future.
