NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Kell High School

Posted by Sara Scheffer | Friday, June 6, 2014 | Category: |

Last time Kell High School and Elite Hoops combined forces was for the Elite Camp last year. The select group of NIKE basketball campers competed to be the best of the best. This week had a similar intensity at Kell High School. The Marietta and surrounding area players came to camp with a need to prove attitude. Head Varsity Boys Coach Jermaine Sellers has done an outstanding job in his second making sure the kids get a great opportunity to learn and be active. We saw a lot of great hustle and focus this week and we cannot wait to see what our next camp at Kell will have in store for us.

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Kell 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 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.
