Sunday Skills, 3on3 League, Spring Break Camp, Winter Break, and NIKE Boys Basketball Camp are all at this great location, St. Francis High School. For most of our campers this week, STF was a place of familiarity. The staff, parents, and campers came into the gym Monday morning expecting the best, and the best was given. Coach Huff, STF Head Varsity Boys Basketball Coach, supports us through out the year, but especially during the summer when kids are working to improve.
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. 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.
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. Until next summer St Francis!
