2013 NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Episcopal Collegiate

Posted by Anonymous | Sunday, June 16, 2013 | Category: |

Little Rock Arkansas? More like Big Rock Arkansas when Episcopal Collegiate and Elite Hoops NIKE Basketball Camps comes together over the summers. Last summer was the first round in Arkansas, but this summer the talent level jumped way up. Every player competed at a high level and pushed one another. First year camp director Micah Marsh said "Coaches and kids energy and enthusiasm was sky high all week. It is going to be hard to top this June's camp!" Maybe July's camp can make me say Huge Rock Arkansas by the end of the week.

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Episcopal Collegiate 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, Florida had to fight back in the semi finals to win in sudden death. After they were battle tested, Florida went on to beat undefeated Duke in the championship. The NBA and high school division championships was dominated by the league leading team. 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. 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 the camper that set new LBN records. 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 in July Episcopal Collegiate. The pressure is on.
