2017 NIKE Girls Basketball Camp: Championship Friday at St. Francis

Posted by Anonymous | Monday, July 17, 2017 | Category: |

This week at our NIKE Girls Basketball Camp at St. Francis, 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 St. Francis 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, St. Francis!
