NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Homewood High School July

Posted by Anonymous | Saturday, July 25, 2015 | Category: |

We had a blast this week at our second sold-out camp at Homewood High School this summer! The talent at Homewood is always top-notch; we could not have asked for better players both on and off the court. Every day, the campers showed up with enthusiasm, eager to hit the hardwood with their coaches and improve their skills in the best game. It was a bittersweet end, and we can't wait to return next summer!

Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Homewood High School 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.  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. While the end of camp is always bittersweet, we are so proud of the improvement and progress made by this group. See you next summer, Homewood!
