NIKE Girls Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Kings Ridge Christian School

Posted by Morgan Moynihan | Monday, July 28, 2014 | Category: |


After a whole summer of boys camps and only one girls camp here in Atlanta, coaches this week were very excited to add another girls camp to the books! With a small camp count, in a smaller gym, coaches and campers really get the opportunity to feel as if they give and receive a lot of one-on-one attention. The girls this week were loud, excited, and determined to get better and break records. With lots of smiles, laughter, and hard work, this ended up being one of our best girls camps yet. Keep working hard girls! 

Throughout this week, the NIKE Girls Basketball Camp at Kings Ridge 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 WNBA 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. 

We had a very exciting week at KRCS with many Living By Numbers record breakers!
