NIKE Boys/Girls Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Academic Magnet High School

Posted by Anonymous | Tuesday, July 29, 2014 | Category: |

As the summer season of NIKE basketball camps begin to come to an end, we love to make sure our campers end the summer season with a bang. The campers at Academic Magnet HS surely knew how to do that. The coaches truly enjoyed working with each and every one of the campers, and enjoyed spending one of their last few weeks with these campers. They saw the potential in each camper, and helped each camper to see and begin to reach their own potential as well. We thank you campers for your hard work, and parents for letting us work with them for the week! See you all next summer!

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Academic Magnet HS 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 Academic Magnet HS!
