NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at St. Francis

Posted by Morgan Moynihan | Tuesday, July 29, 2014 | Category: |






St. Francis is one of Elite Hoops favorite locations. It is not only a camp spot for us, but also a fall training location for us Elite Hoops Fam. We always enjoy our time here whether it is in the fall or summer. This past week was definitely a top week at St. Francis. Campers were ready to learn and eager to hit the hardwood. Coaches all agreed that the campers were determined each day to get better allowing camp to run extra smooth. The week went by fast and it was all because the campers stayed organized by listening to their coaches! Those are the campers we love to have each week!

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at St. Francis 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 next year St. Francis!
