Guam national basketball coach Jimmy Yi, has put together his annual basketball camps over the years. After leading Team Guam to double gold in the 10th Micronesian Games last week in Majuro, Yi puts together a cool summer tournament featuring local combined teams along with a team from Japan and the Philippines.

Three days filled will take place at the FD Phoenix Center starting Thursday morning at 8 am.
