Jalen Moore camp to benefit Fislar family

Monday, May 13, 2024

CLOVERDALE — A former Cloverdale High School basketball star will use his annual basketball camp to benefit a local family in its time of need.

The Jalen Moore Basketball Camp is set for Sunday, June 9 at Cloverdale High School. Normally a free event, the event will be $25 per student this year, with all proceeds going to the wife and kids of Deputy Fred Fislar.

“I was going to make it free. I planned on doing a camp before this tragedy happened,” Moore said. “I know it’s a difficult time for that family, and quite frankly everybody in Cloverdale that knew Freddy.”

Fislar, a Hendricks County sheriff’s deputy and CHS graduate, died April 15 after coming into contact with power lines while checking on the welfare of a motorist who had wrecked. He left behind wife Maddy and two children, aged six years and six months.

The camp will run from noon-4 p.m. and is open to boys and girls age 7-17.

“It’s a chance for the community to come together and support her and her kids,” Moore said. “I think we can make some good money for them.”

Already an annual event serving youth in the community, this year, the Jalen Moore Basketball Camp will raise money for the widow and children of Deputy Fred Fislar, a Cloverdale High School graduate just like Moore.

A camp T-shirt will be included in the registration fee, and placing the shirt order also necessitates a May 24 deadline for registering. Moore noted that anyone signing up after May 24 will need to pay an extra $10 for a shirt.

Additionally, anyone who would like to help sponsor the camp and help out the Fislar family may contact Moore at jalenmoore@oakland.edu or 317-599-8830. Anyone wanting a company name or logo on the back of the shirts may do so for $100, again with proceeds benefiting the Fislar family.

Moore was a four-year letterman for the Clovers and finished his career with 2,440 points, 12th-most in IHSAA history. As a senior, he scored a state-high 1,031 points (36.8 PPG) as a senior, the third-highest mark in IHSAA single-season history.

After high school, Moore went on to star for two years at Olney Central College and then three more years at NCAA Division I Oakland University. Over three seasons with the Grizzlies, he averaged 17.6 points, 7.2 assists and 2.0 assists per game.

Not a Cloverdale native, Moore said he has always felt welcomed in the community and wants to give back.

“They welcomed me with open arms my eighth-grade year when I came there,” Moore said. “It’s been nothing but love, so anything I can do to help the community, help grow the community, and help those kids.

“Whatever I can do, it’s pure joy from my heart just to help the community and help kids.”
