NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Thursday at Smyrna Community Center

Posted by Anonymous | Monday, August 4, 2014 | Category: |

Our very first camp at Smyrna Community Center was an extremely successful one filled with talented and hard working campers. Our college division championship was an exciting one: a three point shot at the buzzer brought the game into over time. Campers took the floor each morning ready to work hard and push themselves. Coaches set the goal for our campers to get 1% better every time they took the floor. Campers proved that they were serious about getting better on "No Walk Wednesday" when they were required to sprint everywhere they went. Camp was an all around success in Smyrna this week. We are looking forward to growing next summer in Smyrna.

Now its championship time! The first championship round was the 5on5 games.  The NBA, college, 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 Thursday 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. Until next year Smyrna!
