week at our sold-out camp at St. Francis High School, the campers
reminded us of how important it is to have FUN playing the
game. Each and every day, they showed up with big smiles, bright energy,
eagerness to enjoy themselves while improving immensely in their
Throughout this week, the NIKE Boys Basketball
Camp at St. Francis 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 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, St. Francis!
