NIKE Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Currey Ingram Academy

Posted by Morgan Moynihan | Saturday, June 28, 2014 | Category: |


Drew Maddux truly knows how to run an A+ basketball camp. His attention to detail, organization, and overall management is what helps his camps run so smooth allowing for each camper to feel as if they are receiving one-on-one training. While the camp is large, the focus on the campers makes it feel small and personal. With this incredible combination of all aspects of the camp, it is surely a sell out. The staff this week truly felt and believed that each and every camper left the gym on Friday having improved in more than one skill area. Whether that was dribbling, shooting, passing, defense, or overall character, the coaches were able to judge that they did their jobs and they did it well because the confidence in their campers was through the roof on Championship Friday. We are excited to come back next year and see many of these returning campers! 

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Currey Ingram Academy 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 it's championship time! The first championship round was the 5on5 games.  The NBA, high school, and college division championships were 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 the crowd favorite was 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. 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 CIA!
