2010 NIKE Basketball Camp Season Concludes

Posted by Lee Miller | Monday, August 16, 2010 | Category: , , , , |

Eleven weeks, 14 cities and 20 camps later we can officially say that the 2010 NIKE/Elite Hoops Basketball Camp season has come to a close. This was the longest, largest and most widespread camp season to date for Elite Hoops and it would not have been possible without our two other Camp Directors: Chris Langley and Patrick Hughes. These two coaches have worked their tails off over the past 11 weeks to help make sure that our camps ran smoothly, efficiently and without hiccups.  Dealing with 1200 campers, 2400 parents and multiple gym locations is no easy task.  However, both Chris and Patrick made it seem that way.

Langley directed our Georgia camps in Peachtree City, Cumming, and Roswell where he oversaw 300+ campers and 36 coaches.  Langley's hard work and dedication hasn't gone unnoticed by other members of the basketball community. In fact, Langley was named Co-Director of the 2010 JJ Hickson Skills Academy here in Atlanta.  Langley has been a vital member of Elite Hoops, setting up many of our Fall Skills Training programs for 2010, so make sure to check out one of his events.

Hughes directed our Florida camps in Parkland, Weston and Boca Raton. There, he oversaw 6 first year camps and a bunch of new staff coaches in the sunshine state. Hughes laid a solid foundation with the south Florida players and parents which will allow us to grow next summer.  Check out what one of the parents said about one of our camps directed by Hughes HERE.  After his six weeks in south Florida, Hughes traveled up to Charlotte for our final camp of the season. There, we figured out that he had been in a hotel for 49 of the past 51 days! Talk about commitment to excellence.

Thanks again to these dedicated and talented coaches. Without them, Elite Hoops wouldn't be so 'elite.'
