“I didn’t have to put myself in the shoes of someone who only has the use of one hand,” he says. “I’ve lived that way my entire life.”

Congratulations to Richard Ramsay of Amp 1 for his work on Nike FlyEase!
GUESS WHAT?!?
.
We have some exciting happenings on the horizon. Our dear friends with Amp 1 might not be able to physically see each other right now, but the ball never stops bouncing for the Amp1 Basketball Team.
.
These guys recently contacted us and wanted to collaborate by doing something fun and staying connected through their passion - basketball. On March 27 @ 2:00 - 3:00PM EST, you'll have a chance to get to know the team a little bit and then go through some basketball drills with each player.
.
We’re honored to be a part of this experience with them and can’t wait to see you there!! All you need is a basketball and if you don’t have one, no problem!! The Amp1 guys have generously offered to send a basketball to those who don’t have one.

Today was full of fun, interesting activities!!
.
We started this Friday off learning about prosthetic fabrication with Josh, who demonstrated how a socket is laminated.
.
Then we spent some quality time with some of the Amp1 team members. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us and provide some solid advice. You’re a part of the AAC family now 🤗.
.
We then relaxed and had fun drawing some colorful mosaics - with chalk, markers, paint, and more.
.
And we finished the day with some good ol’ Candy Top Chef - Family Edition!! It was great seeing our campers/counselors loved ones joining in and the competition was fierce!! The theme was ‘your favorite activity at camp’. And the secret ingredient was...toothpaste!
.
For not being all together at camp, this day was the best substitute we could’ve imagined. Thank you all that made it truly special. 💙

-
On this day, we load up the kids and drive ~45 minutes to Waynesville, NC where Waynesville Parks & Recreation so graciously let’s us take over their facility.
-
The day is filled with various activities that the campers rotate through. These activities include:
-
•Basketball- for years now Amp 1 players have joined us and shown the campers some moves. Thank you to Freedom Innovations and Kimberly Kotch Dell for always making this happen. And special shout out to Steven Anthony Mosqueda who’s been coming a few years now!!
-
•Yoga- Always a relaxing way to briefly unwind from all the other wild activities. And this year we had a group yoga session at the very end of the day, which was much needed after an intense few rounds of dodgeball (see 2nd to last pic 😂🧘)
-
•Pool time- Right before lunch we get to cool off and swim in the big indoor pool.
-
•Adaptive bikes- Huge thank you to AMBUCS for providing a variety of adaptive bikes for the kids/counselors to try out and see what works best for them. Always a hit!!
-
•Disc Golf- One of our own AAC fam members, Mike Durco always represents the disc golf game and brings all his gear to show campers the tricks of the trade.
-
•Dodge Ball- The MAIN EVENT. Campers vs. Counselors. It gets intense, there’s no mercy, and both teams plan on dominating each year.
And we have so much fun.
-
A day jam-packed full of activities and endless fun. We’ll try to measure up today during virtual camp. The fort building was already a huge hit! Can’t wait for the DELICIOUS cooking demo with . Followed by Camp Olympics Games, and Teen Talk. Looking forward to seeing you there 🤗💙 @ Waynesville Parks & Recreation
Dios los cuide mucho a todos hermanitos desde Puerto Rico un amigo y hermano mas en Cristo Jesus bendiciones 👍🏻🤝🔥🏀🙌
Very inspiring to see these men and ecouraging others to keep doing what they love
Thanks to everybody who came out to Cactus Classic to support the athletes in today’s three-on-three round robin games. Amp 1 took home the gold!
If you missed the competitions today, be sure to swing by Ability360 tomorrow for the five-on-five games, or tune in to the livestream to watch your favorite players. Game one starts at 10 a.m. We hope to see you there!

5 years ago our team manager, Nick Pryor # 44 1/2, started working for Ability360 Sports & Fitness Center, taking over Cactus Classic and helping grow the Amp 1 team and program you see today. He helped innovate our mission and our values: educate, motivate and inspire, in order to build a team with advocacy and purpose. He wakes up everyday with these values and leads every Amp 1 program or event with such joy, passion and drive. Nick is a force to be reckon with and we are so glad he is apart of our team 💙

Amp 1 Basketball

Nike 3-on-3 Official 2019 Trailer

We’re only able to this because of Ability360, huge thanks to them. One of our main goals is to have facilities like theirs all over the country.

Please donate and help us in our efforts to make Stand Up Amputee Basketball a Paralympic Sport.

Most importantly we have a deep love and respect for this game and what it has done for our own lives, and it has taught us the responsibility we have as role-models first and then athletes to facilitate our same dreams for others. Especially those who may not have the means, or maybe we’re not put in the same position to succeed.

So for all those who still don’t have an outlet or platform to be heard, or still feel underrepresented, or just want to compete at the highest level. We’re all chasing something, and we’re not going anywhere until we get there.

Come compete against us next year in the Nike Basketball 3ON3 Tournament, we’re chasing something. Are you ready for this?

Can’t wait to run this back with our brother .... The energy on this day was genuinely insane and it’s amazing what being surrounded by the RIGHT people can feel like. ——————————————————If your not around people that make you feel like this on a regular basis, you need to make a change! Surround yourself with better and become the best version of yourself. Do it right now!!! Don’t wait.
