NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Hendersonville First Baptist

Posted by Ellen Rick | Sunday, July 13, 2014 | Category: |


Hendersonville First Baptist Church has been a great host to our campers this week. Under the supervision of Drew Maddux and his coaching staff, our campers worked hard to get 1% better every day. They learned the skills of the game through ball handling, 3 on 3 games, and playing in scrimmages throughout the week. All of our campers worked hard and left the gym each day exhausted. We love to see this much passion and talent in a group of campers. Good work this week boys!

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Hendersonville First Baptist 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.
