Stamina Camp is more than learning the basics of basketball and running drills.

When youth leave the camp they will be better versed on the game both in basketball and in life”.

He played in the league for 11 years which included another championship.   In 2006, Derek won the NBA Championship with the Miami Heat.

Currently, Anderson speaks to audiences all over the world about his life both on and off the court which explains the title of his book, Stamina.
