NIKE Boys and Girls Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at Kell HS

Posted by Cara Gloyd | Monday, June 19, 2017 | Category: | 0 comments






This week at our Kell HS Camp, the campers reminded us of how important it is to have FUN while playing the game. Each and every day, they showed up with electrifying energy, radiant smiles, and a championship attitude ready to challenge themselves while improving tremendously in their individual skill sets. 

Throughout this week, the NIKE Basketball Camp at Kell had exciting and great moments that all led up to a thrilling 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 classroom session to help teach all parts of the game to the campers, developing multi-faceted and knowledgeable players. 

Now it's 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 the Numbers Championships. With many returning campers, there was a lot of anticipation of who will be selected. The Living By the Numbers 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 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, Pinecrest Academy!

2017 NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Blessed Trinity Championship Friday

Posted by Maddie Scott | Sunday, June 18, 2017 | Category: | 0 comments

On Friday, we wrapped up our first of three NIKE Boys Basketball Camps at Blessed Trinity this summer! Coach AJ Holland and Blessed Trinity Varsity Boys Basketball Coach, Patrick Hughes, lead the boys through a week of skill development and lots of fun. Through hard work and working well with their teammates, campers were able to develop individually and get 1% better each day. It was a great week at BT and the improvement shown throughout the week was impressive.


When we finally reached Championship Friday, the boys were eager to put their new skills to the test in a competitive manner. The excitement was contagious as they walked in the gym wearing their new camp t-shirts. But before champions were determined, campers went through individual skill stations to refine their game. This included individual skills drills, 3on3, and classroom sessions.


Then came the 5on5 championship roungs, which is overwelmingly the favorite part of camp. In between rounds, we held the Living by Numbers Championships. Each round consisted of 3 players from each dicision with the highest score in the specific drill. But, the intensity increased even more when we began the 3on3 Cut Throat Championships. Parents, campers, and coaches were astounded at the skill improvement over the course of a 5-day week.

To wrap up camp, we held the NIKE Awards Ceremony. Every camper recieved a camp t-shirt, workbook, player evaluations, and other prizes. Below is a list of Living by Numbers winners and individual winners. It was a great camp at Blessed Trinity and we cannot wait to be back in just a few short weeks!
