Typically, when 10-year-olds travel out of state during the summer, it's for vacation. But when these kids went to Hampton, Virginia last week, it was to put in work.
While most of their friends were sleeping in, or taking a dip in the pool, the Flower City Elite AAU basketball squad was matching up with over 50 of the best 5th grade AAU teams from the East Coast.
But that doesn't mean there wasn't room for a little fun, too.
That's what it's all about for Xavier Major's team: balance - balance between hard work, light fun, x's and o's and life lessons.
He can coach a little basketball, too. Flower City Elite is 45-7 on the season.
