NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Myrtle Beach H.S.

Posted by Brandon Chappell | Sunday, June 30, 2013 | Category: |


Anytime you mention the words beach, summer, and basketball in the same sentence you get an automatic bid to the best week ever! Myrtle Beach in South Carolina and NIKE Basketball have teamed up to make a great week possible at Myrtle Beach High School. Camp director James Lee is a shooting doctor and basketball specialist for South Carolina and the best campers around.

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Myrtle Beach High School 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.  The NBA and high school division championships was balanced throughout the week. 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.

Championship Friday ended with our NIKE Awards Ceremony. All the campers received camps T-shirts, workbooks, players evaluations, and various fun prizes. 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 at summer Myrtle Beach!
