Building positive attitudes and a yearning for the sport of basketball is the aim of Eszylfie Taylor and the Future Stars Basketball Camp held each year at the end of July thru the first of August.

“Basketball is life,” says Mr. Taylor, who in his youth was a star playing the game in high school and college. “The character traits that one must refine to become a successful athlete are the same qualities that equate to becoming a successful person. We stress hard work, perseverance, integrity, teamwork, and discipline in our individual workouts and camps,” says Taylor about the camp.

Taylor told Pasadena Now that the camp focuses on the fundamentals of the game. “Each day we focus on a different skill set,” said Taylor.

Monday – Shooting
Tuesday – Dribbling
Wednesday – Passing
Thursday – Defense/Rebounding
Friday – Review of All Skills

Taylor also told us, “Our coaches have all played college basketball or gone through my camp as well so we bring a lot of experience and knowledge to our campers.”

Taylor commented, “This year’s camp was a complete success and we had a few special moments. Tuesday afternoon [July 31st, 2018] Atlanta Hawks’ Tyler Dorsey came in to talk to the kids. Friday we did a pizza party and luncheon, sponsored by Robins in Pasadena, with a special guest visit from the Pasadena Fire Chief [Bertral T. Washington] and crew who brought a fire truck for the parents and kids to see/tour.”

Mr. Taylor is also the top man, CEO and President at Taylor Insurance and Financial Services in Pasadena, where he has dedicated his life to bringing good things to the community and teaching others how to succeed.
