Tyrik's Story

My passion is basketball. Ever since I was young, playing basketball was always an escape from reality. The reality for me was seeing my neighborhood withering to non-existence. So every time my sneakers touch the concrete pavement or court, my dreams of being the best become real, and all of my struggles magically erase. In my opinion, basketball became more than a game to me; it saved my life from being another disturbing statistic. Overall, basketball is life.

Attending the Chelsea Piers Basketball Camp will help me pursue my passion and love for basketball by giving me a different experience and type of training. In particular, living in a less fortunate area, a basketball opportunity like this is unheard of and rare. Moreover, my attendance at this camp will not only support my dream of being a pro-basketball player but will also enable me to make plenty of new friends.

A Note from Ms. Ramdass, Tyrik's Teacher

Tyrik describes basketball as not only an escape but a way of life. Playing basketball on a team requires discipline and dedication. It is a great way of seeing what students are truly made of because they have to give their all to a team. Tyrik is a wonderfully respectful student who tries hard. Chelsea Piers Basketball Camp will take Tyrik out of his comfort zone and expose him to new experiences. As he stated, he is open to new experiences as he matures and grows. This will be an opportunity that will help shape him. Not only will he be improving his basketball skills, he will also be meeting new people and making friends.
