Davidson Academy is a private Christian school located in Nashville, Tennessee. It has students ranging from K-3 to 12th grade.
July 11, 2022: The highlight of this camp experience was that my son's skills for teamwork and creating assists by passing to teammates was not only appreciated, but also valued by the camp's coaches and director. At the middle school where he has played the past three years., attention was only given to those who decided to stand alone in an effort to call attention to themselves. Because basketball is a team sport and my son values the team sport aspect of the game, it always confused him when he was condemned at school for not being aggressive enough because he passed the ball and set up plays.
