What started out in March 2012 as a way for Kishon Bishop (Blue Chip Basketball Academy/Hope & Hope Inc.) to fund-raise for a summer sports mission’s trip, while also honoring the phenomenal high school careers of some of the Triad’s best basketball players, has now turned into one of the area’s most anticipated annual events! The 7th Annual Triad High School Basketball All-Star Weekend will be held on the beautiful campus of Walkertown High School, March 16th – 17th, 2018, and is expected to be even more successful than ever before thanks to the loaded class of 2018 in the Triad (Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point & Burlington).

It was clear after the first year’s event, held at Piedmont International University, which included events and a game for boys only (who played in Forsyth Country Schools), that there was a desire and need for such an event every season, and for girls, as well. Word traveled quickly and other counties of the Triad wanted to be apart of the event, therefor the FC High School All-Star game became the Triad HS All-Star Classic. The PIU gym was packed to capacity in 2012 with over 275 attendees, so after enlisting the help of sponsors and area scouting services, Bishop moved the event to the facilities at FCDS, and partnered with corporate sponsor, Champion, to provide complete apparel for all participants; Salem Orthodontics partnered to provide beautiful trophies for the winners of the individual contests and the All-Star participants put on a fantastic show for over 650 spectators that came out to support their local players and honor the hard work and dedication they showed throughout their high school careers. This year, the Triad High School All-Star Classics has evolved once more. The Forsyth County All-Star Game, to the Triad High School All-Star Classic has now grown to Triad High School All-Star Weekend!

Hope & Hope Inc. was the driving force behind the creation of the Triad HS Basketball All-Star Classic. Bishop, born and raised on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent, began taking a team of athletes back to his homeland in 2012, in order to provide quality basketball and soccer clinics to children of that country that may otherwise never have the opportunity to participate in organized sports. A portion of the proceeds from the All-Star event go to fund the expenses incurred by the mission trip as it will be doing once more this year.

Anticipation for this year’s event is already building on social media and among the young men and women who have been nominated by their coaches for consideration for the East/West squads, as well as the individual contests (3 Point Shoot Out-boys and girls; Skills Challenge-boys and girls; and the most popular event, the Dunk Contest-boys only). So, go ahead and mark your calendars for Friday, March 16th and Saturday, March 17th to watch the best of the best, as they represent their schools and the Triad for the last time in their high school uniforms!
