2012 NIKE Camp at Carolina Courts: Championship Friday

Posted by Lee Miller | Saturday, August 11, 2012 | Category: |

For 3 straight years, we have hosted our Charlotte NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Carolina Courts and for first time the camp was sold out.  We had out of state players from South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Georgia attending this weeks camp and the competition, energy and enthusiasm grew every single day.

The development of each player throughout the week was tremendous.We had players on all skill levels improving and holding true to their promise to, "get 1% better each day they step on the court." 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.

Connor Meehan-High School Figure 8 Dribble Record-12

JC Tharrington-College Figure 8 Record-32

Braxton McCoy-ALL TIME 2 Ball Power Dribble Record-203

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 Blessed Trinity.
