2013 NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at GAC

Posted by Anonymous | Sunday, June 9, 2013 | Category: |

Greater Atlanta Christian (GAC) has been building a championship environment over the past few years. Coach Eddie Martin and staff have been making sure that each basketball player associated with the program is playing at a high level. All the 2013 NIKE campers are now apart of the GAC family.

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 high school and college division we had two overtime games was an exciting finish. The NBA division championship was dominated by one team. The Celtics shared the basketball and played team defensive the entire week. Next was our Living By Numbers Championships. One camper broke our previous record and was thrilled about the honor. Its my guess the player has been practicing the Living by Numbers (LBN) program online. 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.We had some Living by Number Record Breakers this week. Players that beat All-time or Divisional records are below with their record breaking video and scores.

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. Until next year GAC!
