NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Kell High School

Posted by Morgan Moynihan | Sunday, July 20, 2014 | Category: |


Kell High School is a very important location to the Elite Hoops and Nike Basketball Family. It is one of our top sell out locations, and one of our most talented camps. While we have held many camps here we have even held our extremely amazing Skills Invite Camp. Our coaches had many players they wanted to invite from this camp because the talent, drive, and desire to get better was out of this world this past week. We appreciate all of the campers positive attitudes all week and their willingness to learn and get better from each and every one of us. We are sad that this is our last camp at this location for the summer, but we are excited to start planning for camp next summer. We wish all of you athletes the best of luck in your upcoming season, and we hope to see you all next summer at Kell High School!

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 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 year Kell campers!
