Story in progress…
It was a “Hard-Working” Wednesday at the Pistons Academy Camp in Novi as the coaches preached the value of a hard days work. The campers responded with the typical energy and enthusiasm that coaches expect from the campers at Novi Meadows. “It really is a fun camp because the campers make it fun,” said Red Division Coach Jordan Roebuck, “We bring the hype and they take it to the next level. Very Cool!”
RED DIVISION VLOG
From behind the lenses of Coach Beth… Coming to you live from the Red Division, here are the highlights of today!
Our 5-on-5 standings are unmoved as we played a new game today called Hot Seat! The kids had a blast and played exceptionally well against each other. Blake Wdowiak had some truly fantastic moves to the basket and got some great points for his team. Adrian Noujaim had a few great possessions as well, and played through injury.
Our highest scorer for free throws today is Suveer Singx with 25 points, followed by Rayhan Bhatti and Adrian Noujaim who are tied with 24 points.
We broke two records in Pistons Academy Novi today, the first one was our double overtime ball race tand the other is our $760 money ball jackpot. That is the highest recorded amount in the history of Pistons Academy!
The Player of the Day today Sydney Durant, because as we’ve gone throughout the week she has progressively come out of her shell and really showed the coaches what it means to be a tough and knowledgeable athlete. She is smart on the court, and she definitely holds her own against kids who might be bigger and stronger than her.
As we wrap up our Wednesday, we prepare to have the Dunk Team show us their amazing trampoline skills, and maybe even have a few kids help them out! Until tomorrow, signing off from Coach Beth!
