Christian Laettner Basketball Academy

Hooks & Hoops Weekend!                                  

Date: August 21 - 23, 2015

Location: Beaver Dam High School  (google map)

The Hooks & Hoops Weekend will benefit the community of Beaver Dam in several ways. The youth of our area will have the opportunity to learn from a professional athlete. The anglers in our area will get to share their love of the lake with a true muskie hunter.

The proceeds from this weekend-long event will go to the Beaver Dam School District’s Athletic Dept. and also will provide needed funding for fish restocking in Beaver Dam Lake.

Fish with Laettner! Click here to bid for the opportunity to fish with Christian Laettner. The winning bidder will fish with Laettner during the fishing tournament on Sunday, August 23.

We will also be using our Fishing Tournament to honor area veterans!
Vets can be entered and names will be drawn at random. The veterans chosen will be paired with professional anglers during the tournament.

Christian Laettner had one of the most successful college basketball careers in NCAA history. Laettner was the only player to ever start in four consecutive NCAA Final Fours, in addition to leading Duke to consecutive NCAA titles in 1991 and 1992. He is the All-time NCAA Tournament career scoring leader and winner of the Wooden, Kodak/NABC and Naismith Awards as the National Player of the Year in 1992.

In addition to being drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves as the third overall selection of 1992 NBA Draft, Laettner was a member of the 1992 U.S Men’s Olympic Basketball Team better known as the Dream Team; which won the gold medal in Barcelona.

Christian continues to share his passion for basketball over 20 years later. He travels the country sharing his knowledge and love of the game with boys and girls of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels. The CLBA’s principle teaching is “PASS the ball – as the ball moves faster than any player on the court, only through the PASS. It is a lost and forgotten art form of the game of basketball.
