NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Cannon School

Posted by Taylor Krause | Tuesday, June 30, 2015 | Category: | 0 comments


         


This past week Elite Hoops made a return to Cannon School in North Carolina. Under the direction of the very talented coaching staff these young athletes worked to get 1% better each day. Throughout the week, this group of campers worked extremely hard, kept a great attitude, and most importantly had fun. These players set the bar high, and we cannot wait to return!

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Cannon had exciting and great moments. Championship Friday was nothing short of exhilarating for all the staffers and campers. That morning, the campers filed into the gym with an extra bounce in their step. The excitement in their eyes was visible, and the determination in the room was palpable. 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 classroom session helps teach all parts of the game to the campers. 

Now its championship time! The first championship round was the 5on5 games.  The NBA, College and high school division championships were 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. The 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 camp T-shirts, workbooks, player 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. Thanks for a great week, Cannon!

NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Currey Ingram Academy

Posted by Vira Halim | Monday, June 29, 2015 | Category: | 0 comments




This week, we kicked off the first Tennessee NIKE Basketball Camp of the summer at Currey Ingram Academy in Brentwood. With more than 100 players, this special group was one of our bigger camps, and they sure did not disappoint! Currey Ingram's beautiful campus was the perfect backdrop for an awesome week on the hardwood, and NIKE Camp Director Drew Maddux and his staff loved working with each of the campers.

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Currey Ingram had exciting and great moments that all led up to Championship Friday which could only be described as thrilling for all staffers and campers as well as the perfect close to an awesome week. That morning, the campers filed into the gym with an extra bounce in their step. Everyone's eyes reflected with excitement for the fun activities ahead. The first item on the agenda was the Living By Numbers competitions followed by a quick review in individual skills stations. Each day the campers rotated between 3 different skill stations. Individual skills, 3on3, and classroom session help teach all parts of the game to the campers, developing multi-faceted and knowledgeable players.

Now it's championship time! The first championship round was the 5on5 games.  The NBA, College and high school division championships were balanced throughout the week. Next was our Living By Numbers Championships. There was a lot of anticipation of who would be selected, and the competitors. The 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 camp T-shirts, workbooks, player evaluations, and various fun prizes. Below is the list of LBN winners and the photos of the individual winners. We hope the campers enjoyed this week as much as the coaches and staff did! Thank you, Currey Ingram!
