Bishop McGuinness/Josh Thompson Summer Basketball Camp

*****June 20-24/July 11-15…..9 AM- 2 PM daily*****

Each summer Coach Josh Thompson and the Bishop McGuinness Basketball Program host their annual basketball camps. COach Thompson is a State Championship winning and USA Youth Baskeball certified coach and has been running camps for over 12 years. 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.
