Rondae Hollis-Jefferson spent a portion of his summer vacation from the Brooklyn Nets by joining his brother Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson for their annual Hollis-Jefferson Basketball Summer Camp held at Chester High School this week for boys and girls between 8 & 17 years of age.

The weeklong Hollis-Jefferson Basketball Summer Camp trains young ballers on the fundamentals of the sport in a safe and nurturing environment where they learn how to be successful on and off the court, meet new friends, and enjoy a healthy breakfast, lunch and snack between workouts.

The last day of camp was a carnival day theme with old school games such a checkers, kick ball, relay races, flag football and a gaming truck.

This year’s sponsors helping to provide supplies, equipment, and nourishment to the basketball camp were Nike, Gatorade, Chester Water Authority, Wawa, The Foundation for Delaware County, Earl L. Foster Funeral Home and The Soulfull Project.

Rondae & Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson are two of Chester High School’s most renowned basketball icons. Rondae went on to the University of Arizona before becoming a first round pick of the Brooklyn Nets. Rahlir played four years at Temple University and several seasons in the NBA development league along with other professional teams internationally. They both are recognized as significant role models in the city of Chester for their accomplishments and willingness to come home often to support worthy causes.

“We have to set examples that listening to your parents, hard work and being respectful will help make your dreams come true.”
