Day 5: Championship Friday at NIKE Camp at Oconee County High School

Posted by Chris Langley | Friday, June 15, 2012 | Category: |

Championship Friday was an exciting day for all NIKE Camp Coaches and players at Oconee County High School! Players knew that they would have to perform at their highest level to meet the expectation of parents, friends and family in attendance, and this hard working group of campers did not let themselves or their families down!

The morning started out with players receiving their NIKE camp t-shirts and then were led by Coach Drew in stationary stretch. Stationary stretching was then followed by Coach Langley leading the camp in floor length open up, where the players got their minds and bodies warmed up for the skills stations to follow. After warming up, the players headed into a gauntlet of Skills Stations for the last time. The campers all worked extremely hard during Skills Stations and were reminded to "not mistake activity for achievement," as they completed stations! Our goal for players during the week is to get 1% better each day. Although that may not seem like much, if each player can commit to getting 1% better each day they step on the floor, then they will become much better players.

Next, players participated in their 5 on 5 Championship games. Taking home the championship this week were the Heat, of the NBA division, UGA, of the College Division, and OCHS, of the High School Division. Great job guys!

Living by Numbers Championships followed the exciting 5 on 5 match-ups. Players from each division competed in the Mikan Drill, Figure 8 No Dribble, Cone Jumpers, and Hot Shot for NIKE prizes! You can check-out the winning players below!

Our 3on3 Cut Throat competition was next and the improvement from Monday to Friday was immense. With our strict rules of-calling out your team score, catching in triple threat, making at least 3 passes, screening or cutting after every pass, only having 3 dribbles per catch and yelling "ball, deny or help" on defense-the players showed how they can play team basketball if they work at it.

We ended camp with our Awards Ceremony.
