Nate King, Camp Director’s BIO: Coached basketball at Clark-Atlanta University, Fort Valley State University and New Mexico State University. He has worked as Basketball Development Clinician for Atlanta Hawks Spirit Group, National Basketball Association Chaplain for the Atlanta Hawks and Athletic Director at Elizabeth Baptist Church.
In the basketball segment of the camp we achieve the above goals by having the kids go through a 10- week series of various individual and team-oriented athletic
drills (i.e. shooting, dribbling, passing, rebounding & defense), skills assessments, off-the-court developmental sessions (i.e. media training, character of a champion,
team building exercises, etc) All of these drills and exercises are aimed at not only improving the child’s physical abilities but also improving their basketball I.Q.,
knowledge and respect for the game, but ultimately their self-confidence and belief in his/herself.
Kadija Johnson, Camp Director’s BIO: Spellman College Graduate, Captain of A-Town Dancers of the Atlanta Hawks Dance Team, Former Atlanta Thrashers Ice Girls(Blue Crew), Co-founder Director of Modern Movement Dance Company,
Dance teacher at the Lovett School, and NFL Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader.
Like the basketball segment of this camp, the cheerleading segment will have various cheering exercises, agility training, endurance improvement, life skills sessions, and self-esteem building classes. The cheerleading portion will be lead by various professional cheerleaders and dancers with an extensive background
and training in their perspective fields. We feel that it is very important to develop our young ladies to set a high standard of living, morals and self-esteem and view of themselves. This will help to give them the self-confidence and discipline they will
need in order to go on to become productive members of society in their communities. Ultimately these young women will go on to become mentors and examples for the next generation of young ladies behind them.
