Year after year, Blessed Trinity High School and Elite Hoops NIKE Basketball Camps continue to provide a great opportunity for the kids of Roswell and surrounding areas to learn the game of basketball. Since 2009, this camp has sold out with over 100 campers each summer. The future basketball players must be aware of the waiting list to get into camp, because every players played with an appreciative attitude.
Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Blessed Trinity had exciting and great moments. Championship Friday was nothing less than inspirational for all the staffers and campers. That morning, the campers walked into the gym with an extra bounce in their step. Anyone could notice the focused and determined look in the eyes of the campers. We started off the day with living by numbers. Next we quickly jumped into our individual skills stations for a quick review. Each day the campers rotated between 3 different skill stations. Individual skills, 3on3, and video session gives helps teach all parts of the game to the campers.
Now its championship time! The first championship round was the 5on5 games. In the college division, there was a buzzer beater to make an exciting finish. The NBA division championship close until the final seconds. Next was our Living By Numbers Championships. With so many returning campers, there was a lot of anticipation of who will be selected. Living by Numbers (LBN) program online has been extremely beneficial to most of the campers. We had 4 players break current records. Lastly was the crowd favorite 3on3 Cut Throat Championship. All week the campers have been earning points and learning different ways to be successful with their teams. Coaches, players, and parents enjoyed the intensity during the 3on3 games.
Check out our campers that set new LBN records. We are very proud of all the hard work this week.

The campers that performed well during the LBN Championships, earned autographed NIKE basketballs and NIKE gear. Below is the list of LBN winners and the photos of the individual winners. We are sad the camp ended today, but we are more excited about the improvement of all the campers. See you later this summer Blessed Trinity!
