After an unforgettable 2018, W fans are simply wondering what will Breanna Stewart do for an encore in 2019. 

That remains to be seen, but the reigning regular season and WNBA Finals MVP decided to give back to her hometown of Syracuse by hosting a basketball camp at her alma mater of North Syracuse Junior High School.

A pair of camp sessions were held with over 120 kids in each with proceeds going to the Vera House. 

Kids got to learn the fundamentals of the game as well as fun activities such as playing knockout and trying to steal the ball. 

Stewart described the camp as “what this city deserves and this city needs.”

Especially, this is my first camp, so I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of learning curves and that type of thing but to be able to come back to a place where I grew up, a place where I played and give back to this community and kind of touch as many of these kids as I can, touch their lives and hopefully show them and help them have a successful path whether it’s basketball or anything in life.
