Day 5: Championship Friday at NIKE Camp at Sandy Springs

Posted by Lee Miller | Monday, June 25, 2012 | Category: |

This was our first summer hosting a NIKE Basketball Camp at Sandy Springs United Methodist and the turnout and excitement was more than we expected.  For 5 days, we pushed 50 campers through skills stations, 5on5 full court games with passing and dribbling rules, Living By Numbers contests and also our competitive 3on3 Cut Throat half court games.  The staff brought a tremendous amount of energy during the week and the campers responded by working extremely hard every day.  The improvement of each camper from Day 1 to Day 5 was very impressive and based upon the effort that was given on Friday, we hope that each camper continues to improve their game by using our LivingByNumbers online training program.

We had one Living by Numbers Record Breaker this week.  Check out the video below

We started Championship Friday with a quick stationary stretch and our floor length open up drills.  We soon followed with our 5on5 semifinals and championships.  After a brief break, we put campers through their final set of Skill Stations, where each coach "tested" them with one of the drills they had performed at that station during the week. After an hour of Skills Stations, the top 3 players in 4 of our Living By Numbers drills competed in the LBN Championships for some Nike prizes.  Our final event of the day, was the 3on3 Cut Throat Championships.  Players competed all week long for a chance to play on the Championship 3on3 goals and many players, their effort really paid off.

We ended camp with our Awards Ceremony.  The players listed below are our Living by Numbers Champions and Individual Award Winners for the 2012 NIKE Elite Hoops Boys Basketball Camp at Sandy Springs.
