2017 NIKE Basketball Camp at Notre Dame Academy

Posted by Maddie Scott | Friday, August 4, 2017 | Category: | 0 comments

For our last camp of the summer of 2017, we ventured to Notre Dame Academy and worked with an awesome group of boys and girls! The campers had such enthusiastic attitudes which made the whole camp so enjoyable. They gave 100% in every repetition so that they could get 1% better each day. The entire staff loved working with each camper and watching their skills get better with every drill.


The campers put in hours of hard work in preparation for their favorite day of camp, Championship Friday. Favored by campers, coaches, and parents, this day is filled with competition and eagerness to show off the campers new skills. The energy in the gym was apparent as the players came in wearing their NIKE Camp t-shirts. Before competing to crown the Camp Champions, campers went through stations to refine their overall game. To touch on all aspects of the game, they went through individual skills, 3on3, and classroom sessions. 

After the quick review, 5on5 championship rounds began. In between rounds, the Living by Numbers division winners competed to be named Living by Numbers champions in four different drills. Then, everyone's favorite "3on3 Cut Throat Championship" created another wave of excitement in the gym. The parents and coaches are always shocked to see the improvement in the campers' game after only a week of camp.

To close Championship Friday, we held the NIKE Awards Ceremony. Every player received a camp t-shirt, workbooks, player evaluations, and other prizes. Below is a list of Living by Numbers winners and individual award winners. It was a great summer of NIKE Basketball Camps and we were so lucky to be able to close it out at Notre Dame! See you in 2018!

Posted by Cara Gloyd | Monday, July 31, 2017 | Category: | 0 comments







This week of NIKE Basketball Camps at Smyrna Community Center was an exciting one! The campers this week truly displayed champion attitudes to complement the immense talent on the hardwood, and had a blast bonding with their teammates and coaches. 

Throughout this week, the NIKE Basketball Camp at Smyrna Community Center had exciting and celebrated moments that all led up to a exhilarating Championship Friday for staff and campers. That morning, the campers filed into the gym with an extra bounce in their step. Everyone's eyes reflected with eagerness and 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 a classroom session to help teach all parts of the game to the campers, developing multi-faceted and knowledgeable players. 

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 the Numbers Championships. With many returning campers, there was a lot of anticipation of who will be selected to compete. The Living By the Numbers program online has been exceedingly 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 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, workboorks, player evaluations, and various fun prizes. Below is the list of LBN winners and the photos of the individual winners. Thanks for a great week at Smyrna Community Center!

2017 NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Greater Atlanta Christian School 7/24

Posted by Maddie Scott | Friday, July 28, 2017 | Category: | 0 comments

This week, we wrapped up another awesome week of NIKE Basketball Camp at Greater Atlanta Christian School and closed out our weeks there for the summer! These campers brought their "A" game every day and showed hustle, tenacity, and discipline throughout the entire week. The coaches were in awe of their talents and attitudes, making it a successful and memorable week!


After four tough yet fun days of lots of skill work, Championship Friday approached and the players were excited to show off their new talents. Their excitement to begin the day started the second they walked in and got their NIKE Camp t-shirt. The gym was filled with energy and everyone was eager to begin. But before beginning fully live play, campers got to go through stations one more time to practice. They went through individual skills, 3on3, and classroom sessions.

After the quick review, it was time for our 5on5 championships and we determined the champions for each division. In between rounds, we held the Living by Numbers Championships for four different drills and crowned our winners. Then came the camp favorite 3on3 Cut Throat Championships which created a huge wave of energy and excitement in the gym. Watching the high level play was impressive for a week's work.

To wrap up Championship Friday, we held the NIKE Awards Ceremony. Every player received a camp t-shirt, workbooks, player evaluations, and other prizes. Below is a list of Living by Numbers winners and individual award winners. Thank you for having us again GAC and we enjoyed every minute of this week!

Posted by Maima | Monday, July 24, 2017 | Category: | 0 comments










This week we were at Central Gwinnett NIKE Coed Basketball Camp for the first time ever, and we could not have had more fun! Central Gwinnett happens to be the high school that Coach Jazz attended and she was ecstatic to be at her alma mater this week. GO KNIGHTS! The campers at Central were a joy to have and this camp exceeded expectations. It was a  FANTASTIC week, we could not have asked for a better group of players, both on and off the court. The campers this week had GREAT energy on and off the court. By the end of camp this week, everyone knew everyone it felt almost like we were a family at Central. It was truly breathtaking to witness not only the talent of the group, but also the integrity and sportsmanship they displayed. Our fabulous coaching staff enjoyed working with each of the campers, helping them get 1% better each day! See you next summer, Central Gwinnett!


Every exciting moment this week at the Central NIKE Coed Basketball Camp led up to Championship Friday, which was nothing short of thrilling. This day is treasured by both staffers and campers, and everyone filed into the gym with an extra pep in his step that morning. Excitement written all over the players faces, and the energy in the gym was almost tangible. 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 aspect of the game to the campers.


Now its championship time! The first championship round was 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 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 prizes. Below is the list of LBN winners and the photos of the individual winners.We are sad camp ended today :( , but we are more excited about the improvement of all campers.
