It was a lively morning at Sunrise Christian where kids ages 3 - 15 were coached by Sunrise Elite Basketball Players; Gradey Dick, Jerome Beya, Dillon Hunter, Cam Corhen, Noah Pick, Armaan Bhakta, Joe Zhang, Eddy Pinedo, and Louie Tucker.
Campers had the chance to go 1-on-1 with some of the Sunrise players after working on individual offensive skill work, drills, offensive footwork, shooting, and fundamentals.
"I got a lot better being here." (Judah, age 7)
This event was made possible by generous contributions from Chick-fil-A and GSI Engineering. We are delighted to partner with local businesses that want to impact the next generation and influence the culture of the greater Wichita community.
Head Coach Luke Barnwell addressed the campers on sportsmanship and character. Namely, applying instructions to life.
Campers challenged Coaches to a game of knock-out and knocked-out Gradey Dick, along with all other coaches. Campers won prizes, received a free t-shirt, team autographed season poster, and lunch catered by Chick-fil-A.
