NIKE Coed Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Vestavia Hills

Posted by Morgan Moynihan | Monday, June 1, 2015 | Category: |



The first week of camps for the summer always tend to come with some pre-camp jitters. The coaches are working hard to prove their skills and exciting new position on the NIKE Elite Hoops staff. The campers work hard and prove their dedication to the game of basketball by spending their first week of their summer break in the gym improving their game. Now that is what we call a true athlete! And of course, we can't forget our parents who worked hard getting their kids to camp on time everyday!  This first camp at Vestavia Hills High School was so GREAT that we may just have to say this has been the best first camp of the season yet. These players surely knew how to start this summer, and set the standards extremely high. Until 2016 Vestavia! Keep working hard!

Throughout this week, the NIKE Coed Basketball Camp at Vestavia Hills High School 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 camp 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 summer Vestavia!
