Miller encouraged parents to register their kids from the clinics and camps through the National Trail Parks and Recreation District, but said kids will not be turned away unless the clinics and camps are full.
“I want this to be something that kids look forward to every summer,” Miller said. “I hope that they see by the people that I bring in. They are men who were kids just like them who had dreams and did whatever they had to do to reach them, so why can’t they? I want to teach the kids the fundamentals of basketball and relate it to life as much as I can to help them see that they can be successful. I use the same principles that I use for basketball in my everyday life, and I want to share it with the youth just like it was shared with me growing up in Springfield.”
Miller is now in his third season in Israel. He said he tested the waters in Mexico and Argentina last winter before returning to Israel. He’s averaging 18.2 points per game for Ironi Nahariya, a team from Northern Israel in Israeli’s second division.
“I thank God for the opportunity to go to these places and travel the world just for the experience and to know how blessed I am to be from the United States of America,” Miller said.
