The Nike Basketball Academy


This past week Position Sports finished up its final premium basketball experience for the summer. Working alongside our partners at Nike Elite Youth Basketball (Division of NIKE, Inc.) to deliver the “Nike Basketball Academy.” The Nike Basketball Academy features the top tier high school players around the country and select college basketball players. The Nike Basketball Academy focuses on three areas, “The Mind, The Body and The Game.” In each area, the players improve their skills by learning from the game’s greatest players and compete against the best competition.

This year’s Nike Basketball Academy was again filled with some of the greatest teachers to play the game including LeBron James (Cleveland Cavaliers), Kevin Durant (Golden State Warriors), Kevin Love (Cleveland Cavaliers), Amare Stoudemire (Hapoel Jerusalem) and making a surprise visit was 5-time NBA Champion Kobe Bryant.

With years of experience working alongside Nike Basketball at the grassroots level, Position Sports coordinated all the operations, branding, media relations and marketing.

Position Sports is proud to finish off the Elite Youth Basketball season on a high note and to continue to grow the game for the game’s elite.
