The NIKE Boys Basketball Camps in the southeast of the United States is changing the lives of many young athletes. Of course the basketball players benefit the most, but we are quickly attracting campers with different sports preferences. Football, soccer, baseball, lacrosse, and other sports are gravitating to the NIKE Basketball Camps. We focus on teaching discipline, hard work, and high energy. Once a player has that, the sport is suddenly a little bit easier to improve on. Basketball wise we staff the best coaches and players in the camps area. Basketball summers are very important for basketball players. This summer is wrapping up but we are confident all campers are ready for their next task. Thank you for trusting and giving us the opportunity to help your precious young athletes. Until next summer NIKE Basketball Parents!
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. I've been working NIKE Basketball Camps for 2 years now and this was the first time we had such an evenully matched NBA Chyampionship. Just like the 2013 NBA Finals, the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs at Carolina Courts battled out every second of the game for the championship. The Heat came out victorious. In the high school and college division we had two overtime games was an exciting finish. 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.

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 next year Charlotte!
