NIKE Coed Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at A Game Sportsplex

Posted by Morgan Moynihan | Tuesday, August 12, 2014 | Category: |





This past week at A Game Sportsplex has truly been one for the books. Drew Maddux, officially holds the record for most successful camp with 150+ campers. This camp was definitely one to save for the books. With a lot of talent, a lot of hard work, and a lot of listening ears, the camp was able to successfully run all week long and still have the feel of a small camp. Even with such a large amount of campers, coaches were still able to get to know each and every player. With lots of hard work, organization, and patience, the campers and coaches were able to work together and help each other get better 1% each day. 

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at A Game 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 A Game Sportsplex!
