Itโ€™s the season of backpacks and pencils, boxed lunches and lunch money. Children across the nation are preparing their return to school for another year of learning. To break the ice and anxieties of new teachers, new classmates and often new schools, educators across the country will take attendance on the first day of school and ask their students how they spent the summer. The very lucky lads and lasses at Warriors Basketball Camp may have the best answers of all students, enough to incite the envy of their peers and start the new school year with a surplus of cool points.

For one extra special player who shot around the world in one minute or less โ€” banking all but one of the buckets โ€” a gift of autographed shoes made her day.

Signed kicks?!

The Warriors as a team, and Curry individually, are known to invest in the communities around them. This is but the latest example of the team or its individual players providing opportunities that can help kids to succeed later.
