In 1974, a southern rock band by the name of Lynyrd Skynyrd wrote the song "Sweet Home Alabama", and in 2002 Reese Witherspoon played a southern bell in the movie. Excitingly, NIKE and Elite Hoops are still singing and starting in "Sweet Home Alabama"! Over the past 5 years, Homewood High School has been Elite Hoops' sweet home of Alabama. Each year the Homewood basketball camp sells out. This year we are adding two new locations, Trussville and Vestavia Hills, as well as an addition camp at Homewood. The 2013 NIKE Basketball Camp season will start at Hewitt-Trussville High School. The following week Vestavia Hills High School will host the all girl camp, and Homewood will have camps in June and July.
Lee Miller and Michelle Manfredi will be directing camps in Alabama this summer. Also, each high school head coach will be assisting Elite Hoops. Miller will be at Hewitt-Trussville and Homewood High School. Hewitt-Trussville Varsity Boys Head Coach Zane Arnold, just finished his first season at the school. Arnold is extremely excited about reaching out to the community and fans that supports the program. Head Coach Tim Shepler of Homewood High School is no stranger to leading his teams to glory and co-directing NIKE camps. This will be his 5 consecutive year partnering with NIKE Basketball and Elite Hoops.
At the Vestavia Hills location, Manfredi will use the help of Vestavia Hills Varsity Boys Head Coach George Hatchett, and Homewood Varsity Girls Head Coach Jovanka Ward. Coach Hatchett's familiarity with the school and basketball program will make sure every camper receives the Vestavia Hills treatment. Coach Ward of Homewood understands Alabama basketball extremely well. Coaching all levels of basketball from Homewood Middle School to Alabama A&M University, Ward will happily lend us her expertise this summer.
