NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Episcopal Collegiate

Posted by Morgan Moynihan | Sunday, June 15, 2014 | Category: |



This is the third straight year for Elite Hoops and NIKE Basketball camp to be held at Episcopal Collegiate, and for such a new location, it surely has quickly grown to be a favorite. In just three years this camp has grown so popular it was sold out weeks before camp started on Monday. 93 hardworking, high energy, and fun campers attended this past week, and we have all come to agree that this was one of the best weeks yet. We had one camper walk away with some extra money for hitting the half court shot when money was placed on the ground right in front of him, and we had a coach take home the prize with best Throwback Thursday jersey we have seen yet. We hope that the campers had just as much as we did helping them improve on their skills while also finding and building on their passion for the game. Episcopal's hardwood is always open to them! Until next time Arkansas! 

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Episcopal Collegiate 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. See you soon Episcopal Collegiate!
