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!
