Former Greenfield School star Jeremy Jeffers will host his Power Basketball’s Evaluation Camp for middle and high school players Saturday in the Greenfield gym.

The camp will focus on the skill set of each player as they work through a series of drills and competition. A detailed evaluation of each player will be emailed to their parents, suggesting in which areas they need to improve. There will also be a mandatory academic session in which Jeffers and his staff will present the importance of academics and completing one’s education.

The camp for middle and high school girls will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the middle/high school boys camp will go from 2-6 p.m.

The cost per participant is $50. To register or to learn more about Power Basketball, visit its website at powerathletes.net and click on the Events>Camps tab at the top of the page.

Jeffers helped Greenfield reach the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association 1-A championship game as a senior in 2010. The Wilson native signed with NCAA Division I Drake University and played for the Spikes for two years, redshirting his freshman season. He then transferred to Indiana University of Pennsylvania to finish his career and helped the Crimson Hawks reach the NCAA Div. II championship game in 2015.

He has operated Power Basketball, which “focuses on teaching basketball while incorporating like skills,” since 2016.
