SLU AT Faculty and Students Cover Prestigious NIKE Event

SLU Athletic Training Education Program faculty and students worked together to cover the NIKE Elite 100 basketball camp.  Previously known as the NIKE Hoop Jamboree, it has been held on the SLU campus since 2000.  Numerous current NBA players have attended the camp over the years when they were high school freshmen and sophomores.

The description of the event from the NIKE website:
Previously known as the NIKE Hoop Jamboree for the past 12 years, the NIKE Elite 100 has been the nation’s premier basketball event for elite underclassmen. This year, NIKE, along with the St. Louis Eagles Basketball Club, is inviting the country’s best basketball players to St. Louis for four intense days of competition. The goal for the NIKE Elite 100 is to give the best players the opportunity to develop their skills and to grow their game to heights never imagined. The NIKE Elite 100 is held on the campus of St. Louis University, in the heart of mid-town St. Louis and just minutes from the renowned Gateway Arch.

Pictured above is a group of the SLU faculty and students who worked the Elite 100 event.  NIKE provided the medical staff with gold uniform shirts so they could easily be identified at the event.
