Concordia Players Mentor Bronxville Youngsters

BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – Youngsters of the local communities filled Meyer Athletic Center last week for the Concordia College Men’s Basketball team’s 2nd Annual Summer Basketball Camp.

The Concordia Clippers hosted the camp, which ran from Aug. 8 to Aug. 13, and was attended by almost 40 children ages 5 to 13 from as far as New Rochelle, Tuckahoe, Bronxville, and Eastchester.

Clippers’ Head Coach Brian Sondey started the camp last season as a primary fundraising opportunity for the men’s basketball program. The camp’s main purpose is to teach skill development to all ages while making basketball not only fun but competitive.

“We like to mix everyday up with skill building and competition like league games,” Sondey said. “The goal was for every camper to walk away having learned some great basketball stuff throughout the week. Our ‘Coaches’ Concordia players were the key as they made for a great camp.”

Sondey’s staff of coaches included junior Brandon Whitaker (Manhattan), sophomores Marquis Campbell (Albany) and Norman Pope (Washington, D.C.), and incoming freshmen Jason Alleyne (New Rochelle) and Dominique Spann (West Babylon). The players worked the camp as volunteer coaches to help take the players through individual and team skill development.

The Concordia men’s basketball program will also be holding their 2nd Annual Friday Night Clinics this fall. The clinics will be run at the Meyer Athletic Center for four consecutive Friday evenings starting September 23 at 6:30 p.m.
