Nike Basketball Camp Week 2: Recap
Our second week of Nike Basketball this year was held at First Baptist Church-Columbia and went extremely well as we welcomed 37 boys and girls. The kids had a fun time playing the game and learning during the skill development sessions throughout the week.
The camp encompassed so many opportunities for our participants to get better especially in the 3on3 NIKE ELITE League. Each player competes nationally in our 3on3 Standings, plays in one 5on5 game and participates in our Living by Numbers contests each day. Living by Numbers are individualized basketball drills each camper will complete. The drills are Shooting, Ball Handling, Speed & Agility and Compilations.
At the end of the camp, 4 phenomenal athletes rose up the ranks to receive MVP and Coaches Award acknowledgments:
Congratulations to our NBA division award recipients!
Benjamin Davis – MVP (ELITE Camp Invitee)
Joshua Elliot – Coaches Award (ELITE Camp Invitee)
Congratulations to our College division award recipients!
Micah Elliot – MVP (ELITE Camp Invitee)
Andrew Cole – Coaches Award
*We would also like to commend individuals that didn’t receive awards at camp but still received an invite to the ELITE Camp: Wells Fleming and Connor Hayes
Our NIKE Basketball summer camp is a perfect way to prepare for your school, church, recreation or AAU league/season as they all receive a free Nike camp T-shirt, Nike camp certificate and a personalized evaluation from the Nike camp coaching staff.
We would like to thank our Nike Camp Director Jason Harman and his staff: Coach Jeremy Jordan, Marcus Reese, Josh Dollard, Keturah Jackson for taking the time develop these young athletes as they’ve all played collegiate/professional hoops themselves.
Stay tuned for more updates on this summer series of NIKE Basketball Camps!
