Day 5: Championship Friday at NIKE Camp at Blessed Trinity High School

Posted by Chris Langley | Saturday, July 14, 2012 | Category: |

Our exciting week of sold out NIKE Basketball Camp at Blessed Trinity High School, concluded with hard work and even more excitement on Championship Friday! Players knew that they would have to perform at the highest level to meet the expectation of parents, friends, and family in attendance, and this hard working group of 105 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 the coaching staff in stationary stretching and 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 8 of their favorite and most challenging Skills Stations for the last time. The campers all worked extremely hard during Skills Stations and were reminded that "hard work brings prosperity" 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.

Our 3 on 3 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.

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!
Finally, players participated in their 5 on 5 Championship games. Taking home the championship this week were the Thunder, of the NBA division, Florida, of the College Division, and Alpharetta, of the High School Division. Each of these games were very competitive and the players showed great improvement over the week. Great job guys!
