Group Camp
Bishop Summer Basketball Camps 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.

- Teaching progression takes into account age and skill differences

- Develop Listening Skills

- Lengthen Attention Span

The goals of Bishop Basketball camps are that each camper leaves a better player (IMPROVE) and enjoys himself throughout the week (HAVE FUN).
