KANSAS CITY, Missouri - Former Kansas City Central High School and UMKC basketball star Michael Watson is giving back to his community.
Watson is putting on the first ever Michael Watson/FCA Power camp. It will be a multi-sports camp held at Central High School July 19-22. He said there's never been a camp like this held in the heart of the urban core. Campers range from 8-13 years old.
"The FCA and myself have teamed up to bring something to the city that's not only sports driven but character development as well," Watson said.
The camp offers boys and girls basketball, football, girls volleyball, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls track and field, cheerleading and dance. It costs $35.
Watson graduated from Central in 1999 and UMKC in 2004. He played for the Boston Celtics in 2004. Then, he left the Celtics and played overseas the last eight years.
Now, Watson has moved on from basketball. He just started a Christian record company and has three artists from the Kansas City area. He's also teaming up with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes to give inner-city youth a positive experience.
