My name is Kalere Caldwell and I am a graduate of Atholton High School (2015). I have been playing basketball competitively since I was six and AAU from the 6th grade until my last year of eligibility. I was a four-year starter in high school playing the small forward, power forward, and center positions. Toward the end of the senior season, my high school basketball career ended with a concussion. Despite the injury, my team finished as County Champions and I was selected to the 2015 Howard County First Team All-County list. After high school, I suffered another concussion that kept me off the court when I entered college. I picked up coaching and loved it. I coached teams, clinics, camps, and conducted private lessons in basketball. I have a passion for helping those be the best they can be through positive teachings. Over my years of playing, I noticed how girls basketball was almost looked down upon with not much light given to uthe hard work they put in. I picked up editing when I was in high school; making highlight films for college coaches. I want to do more for girls basketball!
