Bishop Summer Basketball Season!!!

Our head JV coach, Josh Bowden, is coordinating our summer season and registration this year- however, our summer season is for both our prospective JV and Varsity teams. Coach Bowden's contact info is and Coach Thompson's is, or you can use

Our summer season is open to any current or rising Bishop student who is interested in playing basketball next season. Summer season is not required, but it's a great way to get a head start on next season.

We are having a "Bishop Basketball Boot Camp" that will run from June 13-26, with the exception of Sundays. "Boot camp" is for our current players and rising 9th graders. At "Bishop Basketball Boot Camp" our guys will work on fundamentals of the game as well as our offensive and defensive schemes in preparation for team camp and next season.
JV and Varsity will scrimmage at Calvary Baptist in Winston Salem on Saturday June 27.

We also will attend team camp at Catawba College from June 30- July 2 and stay overnight for 2 nights. Team Camp would be a culmination of the work we have put in during Boot Camp- we will get actual game play vs other high school programs. We would like for as many guys as possible to go. We will have teams of 8-10 players per team, and teams will be put together to maximize playing time and experience for each player.
We would stay in the dorms on campus, and the registration fee includes your son's housing and meals for the time we are there.

The costs are listed below:

Boot Camp only : $100

Team Camp & Boot Camp : $275

***Please make checks payable to Bishop Boys Basketball***
(Deadline to have money in will be Friday, May 29th since we have to cut a check by June 1st)
Please include your son’s name on the check.

To register for team camp/boot camp write your son's name, grade, and your contact information on a sheet of paper, include your check and place in an envelope (Mark: Attention Josh Thompson/Josh Bowden- Boys Basketball). Envelopes can be dropped off at the main office at Bishop or be mailed to the school at: Bishop McGuinness High School, 1725 NC Hwy 66 South, Kernersville, NC 27284- Attn: Boys Basketball, Coach Thompson/Coach Bowden

Please contact Coach Bowden ( or myself with any questions (Josh's cell # 336-317-3241- much easier to email him- please include your son’s name in email).

12th Annual Bishop Summer Basketball Camp Registration Now Open!!!


Each summer Coach Josh Thompson and the Bishop Basketball Program host their annual basketball camps. Since 2004, the Villain basketball camps have provided area youths the opportunity for instruction in the fundamental skills of basketball. In addition to small group instruction, campers at Bishop basketball camps are allowed the opportunity for individual instruction and skill work, coaches challenge games, camper competitions, and daily camp games. Camp is run by Coach Thompson, the Varsity boys head coach, along with current and former Bishop McGuinness players and coaches. Each year Bishop Basketball alumni love to come back to be coaches or guest speakers at camp. Each camper who attends does not simply come and play games- Villain basketball camps stress individual and small group fundamental skill instruction. 

We have been at capacity (60 per session) the last several years, so register today to guarantee your son's spot at camp.

We will have 2 sessions again this summer running from 9 AM- 2 PM daily.

Session 1- June 22- June 26

Session 2- July 13- July 17
