Posted by Lee Miller | Monday, June 29, 2009 | Category: | 0 comments

The inaugural NIKE/Elite Hoops Boys Basketball Camp at Homewood High School kicked off today with a sold out camp. This marks our 4th straight sold out camp this summer and we are very excited to be doing it in a first year camp in Birmingham. We have four of the top high school head coaches in the area on staff at the camp and we have players from all around the Birmingham metro area. Players worked for 90 minutes in the morning at eight different stations, as well as competed in their morning 5 on 5 games, afternoon Individual Improvement and 3 on 3 Cut Throat. Tomorrow promises to be another hard working day with the staff and campers!

Elite Hoops Basketball concluded another quality week of camp at Riverwood High School today. Friday's half day of camp concluded with 3 highly competitive championship games including two sudden death overtime games in the high school and college divisions. The NBA division championship game also came down to the final seconds. In addition to the Division Finals of 5 on 5, the campers participated in a review of all the station work they participated in during the week as well as the individual improvement championships. The top 3 campers in each division enjoyed an opportunity to compete for Nike prizes by participating in the Figure Eight no dribble, Mikan, Diagonal Layup, and Hot Shot finals. The winners in each division were recognized during an award ceremony at the end of camp. Once again, we'd like to thank Coach Mezzio and Riverwood High School for allowing us to use their facilities for the NIKE/Elite Hoops Camp and we look forward to seeing everyone who came out again next year!

Day 1 at Riverwood High School was full of intense basketball instruction and more than 50 campers eager to improve their basketball skills and knowledge. The campers were split into three divisions based on age and ability. Each division (high school, college, and NBA) participated in 5 on 5 and 3 on 3 games in the afternoon. The morning session included 8 different stations focusing on different basketball skills as well as a speed and agility station. Elite Hoops would like to thank RHS Head Coach M Mezzio for allowing us to use the Raider Gymnasium this week. We will see everyone back tomorrow morning at 9am!

Week 2 at Greater Atlanta Christian

The first day of camp at GAC was a huge success! We have over 95 campers this week as well as a staff of 14 former and current college and professional coaches and players. You couldn't ask for a better facility to run camp at than the new Long Forum on the campus of GAC (see the picture below). We are extremely thankful to Head Coach Eddie Martin and the entire Spartan family for letting us use their brand new gymnasium. We had an extremely competitive day of 5 on 5 , 3 on 3, as well as several individual improvement contests. We also had 10 skill stations that the players went through in the morning. Hopefully all of the campers get a good nights rest because Day 2 promises to be just as exciting.
