Day 1 of NIKE Camp at Madison Academy

Posted by Chris Langley | Tuesday, May 31, 2011 | Category: , , |

At our first annual NIKE/Elite Hoops Boys Basketball camp at Madison Academy, coaches emphasized the importance of "not mistaking activity for achievement." Players were told that just because they were at camp, in a station, or even playing 5 on 5, they were not going to achieve anything (or get better) if they weren't giving their full effort!

This applies to any aspect of their game, whether it is ballhandling, rebounding, shooting, or defense. A player must go game speed to get better, and eventually perform better in games. The goal is to help players develop this type of work ethic outside of camp when working by themselves in the off-season.

If players continue to work as hard the rest of the week as they did in their stations, 5 on 5, Living by Numbers, and 3 on 3, as they did on the first day, then they should see tremendous improvement by Friday afternoon! The coaches are excited to see what's in store for this talented and hard working group!
