Camp Director Awvee Storey
Awvee Storey is a former professional basketball player turned player development coach. Storey played in the NBA and abroad for 11 years. He recently finished his second WNBA finals appearance in the 2022 season with Connecticut Sun as the Director of Player Development. He was also an assistant coach in the NBA G-league for the Capital City Go-Go inaugural year and Maine Celtics 2021 season.View Awvee's Bio ⟩
Prior to his time in the front office and side-line, Storey attended Arizona State University as a student athlete. After graduating, he began playing basketball abroad and then progressed to the NBA for four seasons (Wizards, Nets, and Bucks). Since that time, Storey has taken an unusual career path for a former NBA player. As the Director of Player Development for the Sun, his experience as a former player helped him understand what players needed off the court. He has taken a holistic approach to coaching with consideration for players' overall well-being. At the professional level, he brought in yoga and other mindfulness experiences to players. In addition to his experience with professional basketball, Storey is entering his 10th year as a director for Nike Basketball youth camps.
"Working with kids has been a long-time passion of mine. During my time as a coach, I have worked with players at all ages and skill levels. My perspective as a former player will allow me to engage with your child in a very relatable way. I hope to bring the holistic approach I utilized in professional basketball to my Nike camps. I will incorporate different yoga poses during our morning and end of session every day from a licensed trainer. Throughout camp week, this will allow your child to work on being as present as possible in all things. I want your child to not only have a great experience learning new basketball skills on the court, and meeting new friends, but also to work on the entire player, and that includes his or her overall well-being."

July 3, 2018: The camp was VERY organized, started right on time, and remained on schedule the entire week. My daughter received great instruction and was pushed to improve all week. The camp provided valuable feedback regarding her basketball skills to help her improve. The coaches did not "coddle/baby" the campers, but encouraged them and pushed them to try their hardest for each drill. I would definitely recommend this camp to other parents whose children are interested in basketball. Should our schedule allow, we will be back next year!

Coach Awvee and his team are all-stars.
Coach Awvee and his team - an all star team... This is the second year for both of our kids and they want to attend every single year - as many camps as possible. I did recommend this camp to one of my co-workers and he had both of his kids attend the camp. He was extremely impressed and was thankful for having introduced him there.

Thank you again- I'm sure we'll be seeing you at a Spring Break or Summer Camp next time around!
Dear Awvee -My daughter attended your Nike camp the week of July 17th and I have been meaning to send you a note of thanks. We really enjoyed the basketball tickets to the Mystics game. My daughter took two of her AAU basketball team members and they had a great time. It was such a nice treat - thank you. She always gets so much out of your camps and we appreciate the time and energy you put in to make it a positive, team building environment where kids of different skill levels get to contribute, develop their skills, and get feedback. We have put her in a few different camps, and we find yours the best. I know she is a better ball player because of the skill work and exposure to different playing styles. She loves the coaches as well. She definitely gained more confidence during the week. She came home excited as she had practiced (and landed) a bunch of 3 point shots during one of the days- which she has been trying for the past few months. That night, she had a summer league game and landed two in game play. She also landed two at AAU Nationals down in Orlando this past weekend - and she was really so proud of herself. Being a small guard, she is really working on her outside shots. She really does love the game. Thank you again - and I'm sure we'll be seeing you at a Spring Break or Summer Camp next time around!
— Ginger C., Parent

Had a great time!
Coaches did a good job teaching the less advanced players. I met some new friends... Had a great time!
— Matt W., Camper
Our children got individual time and coaching.
The kids attended 3 basketball camps this summer. This was the only one that provided a written evaluation. This was tremendously helpful. Now they know what they need to work on. As a parent, we really loved this because we felt that our children got individual time and coaching and not just lumped in with a big group.
Camp was awesome.
Camp was awesome. Coach Awvee and the other coaches were really fun and patient with me when I was learning new ball handling moves. The games were really fun and I improved a lot.
The coaches were terrific, very professional and energetic.
My daughter has been to several basketball camps over the years, the Nike Camp at Ida Lee has been by far her best experience. The director, Mr. Storey did an excellent job working with her on her post moves and provided some great insight into his basketball career. The staff of coaches were terrific, very professional and energetic. My daughter can't wait for next year!
