One of the great things about the City of Burbank’s Basketball Camp is the attention to teaching and learning the game of basketball while having a good time doing it. Graceffo, who is also the Camp’s founder and Director besides coaching basketball at Burbank High also brought in some great coaches to be guest instructors or speakers.   Hart  Head Coach Tom Kelly, Providence head man Ernest Baskerville, Burbank Head Coach Coach Jose Hernandez, Burroughs Head Coach Adam Hochburg and Village Christian Varsity boys coach John Shaw were on hand different days.  Other highlights of the camp included camp games, station fundamental drill work, free throw contests, Raffle prizes, etc. There were close to 80 kids in camp this past week with each camper receiving a t-shirt, gym bag, player profile and drills booklet. Graceffo has directed the MVP Basketball Camp for over 11 years for the City of Burbank, Park & Recreation, Community Services Dept. as it continues to  get bigger and better  every year. Besides being the Camp Director, Graceffo is also currently the Boys frosh/ Soph Coach at Burbank High School, as well as an recreation coordinator with the City of Burbank. He also is a part-time A.D. for St. Francis Xavier School in Burbank. Look for his annual MVP winter Camp sometime in the near future.
