NIKE Girls Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Sandy Springs United Methodist Church

Posted by Anonymous | Sunday, June 21, 2015 | Category: |

This week kicked off our first NIKE Girls Basketball Camp of the summer in Georgia and it was a great success. The girls showed up each morning with a smile on their face, plenty of energy, and a strong desire to improve their overall game. By the end of the week, whether it was dribbling with their heads up, proper shooting technique, or how to be a good teammate the players showed much promise in their basketball futures.     

Throughout this week, the NIKE Girls Basketball Camp at Sandy Spring United Methodist Church had exciting and great moments that all led up to Championship Friday which could only be described as lively and electrifying for all staffers and campers. 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 its championship time! The first championship round was the 5on5 games.  TheWNBA, 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. While the end of camp is always bittersweet, we are so proud of the improvement and progress made by this group. Thanks for a great week, SSUMC!
