NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Blessed Trinity

Posted by Anonymous | Sunday, July 13, 2014 | Category: |

This past week at Blessed Trinity was one exciting week. The gym was filled with a lot of energy, hard work, and love for the game of basketball. Blessed Trinity is always a top camp location that sells out extremely quickly. Our 100 plus campers who came to camp this week proved their spot at Blessed Trinity. Every coach enjoyed each and every camper who attended camp, and we are all sad to say goodbye until next summer, but we are extremely excited to start planning for camp at Blessed Trinity for the summer of 2015. These players knew how to end camp at BT for the summer the right way. Keep working hard campers, and continue to get better 1% each day! We can't wait to work with you all again next summer! 

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Blessed Trinity 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 college 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, 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 summer Blessed Trinity!
