Once again, Elite Hoops traveled to South Carolina, this time taking over Myrtle Beach at Calvary Christian School. This camp was truly special and was directed by Coach Corey Hendren. Throughout the week, this group of campers never failed to impress the coaches not only with their talent, but also with their collectively uplifting and positive attitudes both on and off the court. These players set the bar high, and we cannot wait to return!
Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Calvary Christian 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 the best week, Calvary Christian!
