Day 5: Championship Friday at NIKE Camp at Homewood

Posted by Lee Miller | Friday, June 29, 2012 | Category: |

Our 4th year of hosting a NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Homewood High School was nothing short of amazing. With 80 campers and 12 staffers, this camp was our most successful NIKE Basketball Camp in Birmingham based upon the improvement of each camper.  Even though camp ended today, we hope that each camper continues to improve their game by using our LivingByNumbers online training program. To see each campers Living By Numbers scores from the week click HERE.

We had some Living by Number Record Breakers this week.  Players that beat All-Time or Divisional records are below along with their record breaking video and scores.

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 Homewood High School.
