Both the men’s and women’s basketball teams at PUC made serious impacts on and off the court this past year. One player, Jenna Peña, has dedicated her summer to helping out with NBA point guard, Stephen Curry’s summer youth camps.
Jenna was kind enough to answer a few short questions about her incredible experience.
How long have you been working the camp?
I have been working with the Warriors for a year now, and I work with the youth basketball camps to teach the fundamentals of basketball.
Where are the camps held?
They are held all over the Bay Area. It’s really a great experience to work with the kids on their game, but also teach other values off the court.
What are some of the values that are taught to the kids involved in the camp?
We are there to provide the campers with both a positive and competitive atmosphere on and off the court. We emphasize the importance of hard work and a team-oriented mindset. We want the campers to bring out the best in themselves, which translates into everyone encouraging each other.
How is Stephen with the campers?
Steph is amazing! He is great with the campers he plays basketball with them, has meals with them and is genuinely a man of God. It truly is a blessing to see a NBA superstar so humble and with a strong connection with Christ.
