As Victory Scholars, one of our many responsibilities involves raising money for Sport Changes Life throughout the year. For our physical fundraiser, Alyssa and I ran a camp for our miniballers during the midterm break. It took a lot of planning and coordination with Jillian Hayes and Jens Gloeckner of the Waterford Wildcats – we couldn’t have done it without them!
For two and a half hours over three days, Alyssa and I organized games and skill workouts for our campers. It was a huge success! We worked on layup and shooting form, ball handling, hand-eye coordination, and footwork. The trick was keeping the girls entertained while we did these drills, so we made them into games. I know they had a blast, and we did too!
