Caleb Avery

The AYMC’s own Caleb Avery was nominated and chosen as one of twenty-eight black leaders of the Upstate to be highlighted on FM 96.3, The Block, during the month of February. He is the AYMC Weeknight and Weekend Supervisor.

Caleb is also the Program Director and Founder of 3 The Hard Way Basketball Academy. He uses the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and hard work to teach children from many different backgrounds in the Upstate. His mentor program through 3 The Hard Way gives three college students a semester to focus on the concepts of financial management, building a small business and understanding the principles of community development.

If that wasn’t enough, he is the Athletic Director for Einstein Academy and a youth motivational speaker for elementary, middle and high school children.

Caleb’s path began several years ago when he started training a family member for basketball and has since become Greenville’s only year-round ‘Basketball Academy’, offering camps, personal training, coaches clinics and teams for every season of the year.

We are happy that Caleb is part of the AYMC and First Baptist and proud of him for all that he gives back to the Greenville community.
