This week at Greater Atlanta Christian certainly was an exciting one! The gym pulsed with the enthusiastic energy of the campers and their passion for the game was evident in the way they played the game. In these five days, the coaches witnessed their players get 1% better each day. This group played with plenty of intensity and their potential showed on the court. We are looking forward to another great week at GAC in July!
Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at GAC 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. 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. See you next year Greater Atlanta Christian!
