3rd Annual Winter Baseball Camp at the Inspiring Kids Academy

This weekend, the Jerry Clark Foundation hosted its 3rd annual Winter Baseball Camp at the Inspiring Kids Academy located in Decatur, Georgia. Over 150 youths in the Atlanta metropolitan area enjoyed a full day of pure baseball instruction and enhancement. Campers received proper fundamentals and techniques from professional players and instructors in Major League Baseball and other esteemed baseball professionals and instructors.

This year’s camp took place in a new indoor baseball facility. Special guest’s instructors included Marquis Grissom, a MLB veteran and Cedric Hunter of the San Diego Padres. In addition, former Atlanta Falcons’ safety and Atlanta Braves’ outfielder Brian Jordan, and Atlanta Blue Jays coach/CEO Anthony Dye, served as keynote speakers to discuss the importance of being well-rounded, dedication, overcoming failures and adversity, as well as taking pride in personal appearance. 

Campers left with an unforgettable experience and expressed great gratitude in being a part of the camp.  Community leaders Stan Watson, Lee May and Assistant Chief of DeKalb County Police Dale Holmes all came out to show their support for the work the Jerry Clark Foundation is doing in the community.

The Jerry Clark Foundation was founded with the intent to give back to the community and create individuals that will be assets to society via academics and athletics. The organization stresses high academic achievement to help youth avoid potential pitfalls such as dropping out of school and substance / alcohol abuse. In addition, the foundation believes athleticism can create a team mentality where students can develop a culture of openness without taking things personally, which is critical to success.

The Jerry Clark Foundation Inc, hosts several events throughout the year.  For more information, please visit www.jerryclarkfoundation.org
