NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Pinecrest June

Posted by Anonymous | Monday, June 1, 2015 | Category: |

As the first camp of the summer, and the first  camp to ever be held at Pinecrest Academy, we have all agreed that every aspect of the camp was the best way to start the summer and bring in a new NIKE Elite Hoops Basketball Camp Location. The campers truly showed us hard work all week, and their dedication to the game of basketball was very clear because they decided to spend their very first week of summer break with us in the gym. We are extremely happy with how it turned out, and the amount of hard work the campers gave and brought each and every day. We can't wait to see you again next summer at Pinecrest Academy!

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Pinecrest Academy 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 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. 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. See you next year Pinecrest Academy!

This week we had two campers beat the current Living By Numbers records! Watch as Ryan Keiffer gets a total count of 99 catches in the the Flip Flop Living By Numbers Drill to set the new record! Caleb Underwood sets the new record in the  Figure 8 Dribble Living By Numbers Drill with a total of 13.5 rotations!
