NIKE Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Christ Presbyterian Academy

Posted by Vira Halim | Sunday, July 26, 2015 | Category: |






Coach Drew Maddux and his crew returned to Christ Presbyterian Academy for a second week of NIKE Basketball Camp this summer. This location has a very special place in Coach Maddux's heart; he has been the Head Varsity Boys Basketball Coach, as well as the Admissions Director, at CPA for the past eight years. He has led the Lions to a combined 240-44 record and two state championship appearances in his years as head coach. This week, he brought that same winning energy to the NIKE Boys Basketball Camp. This week's players demonstrated the true determination and drive it takes to be champions, and the coaches loved working with this group every second of the week. We cannot wait to return to the Academy next summer!

Every exciting moment this week at the Christ Presbyterian Academy NIKE Boys Basketball Camp led up to Championship Friday, which was nothing short of exhilarating. This day is treasured by both staffers and campers, and everyone filed into the gym with an extra hop in his step that morning. Anticipation shone in the eyes of the players, and the energy in the room was palpable. 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 classroom 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 summer,  CPA!
