This week, we returned to Blessed Trinity for a second week of NIKE Boys Basketball Camp, and we could not have been more excited! The campers at BT never fail to disappoint, and the 18th straight sellout camp exceeded expectations. It was AMAZING week, and we could not have asked for a better group of players, both on and off the court. It was truly special to witness not only the talent of the group, but also the sportsmanship and character they displayed. The spectacular coaching staff enjoyed working with each of the campers, helping them to get 1% better every day! See you next summer, Blessed Trinity!
Every exciting moment this week at the Blessed Trinity 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. Not only did we have a camper break a record; we had TWO. Congratulations to Caleb Jones for breaking the HS division Power Layups record and Nick Smith for breaking the NBA division XBOX record! 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. We can't wait to return to Blessed Trinity next summer!
Watch below as Caleb James sets a new High School record for Power Layups with 17 and Nick Smith sets a new NBA record for XBOX with 5 revolutions!
