BCBA to hold second basketball camp
Blue Chip Basketball Academy (BCBA), of which Vincentian Kishon Bishop is founder, will, from July 30 to August 5, hold its second annual Veronica Bishop Classic, at the Campden Park hard court.
Four teams â Blue Chip, North/Central Leeward, Mavrix and Playaz â will compete for honours in five days of competition, except Thursday.
The double-header matches run between 6 and 9 p.m.
In between the nights of the Classic, there will be other activities to consume the week.
The cleaning of the Campden Park hard court is set for Sunday afternoon, July 30.
Also on the agenda are male and female basketball coaching sessions slated for the Girlsâ High School hard court on Monday, July 31 and Wednesday, August 2, catering for players between the ages of 12 and 18.
These sessions are timed for 9 to 11:30 a.m.
Additionally, there are coaching clinics for Thursday, July 3, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, July 5, from 4 p.m., at the Campden Park hard court.
Bishop, who will be leading the team of coaches, said that during the breaks he would be speaking to the participants about life as a student athlete and will present the Gospel of Christ.
Bishop clarified that his organization, Blue Chip Basketball Academy, is separate from another organization, Hope and Hope Ministries, which will be conducting their programme around the same time also in the Campden Park community.
The mission of the BCBA is to provide quality, professional basketball training programmes and leagues for children who are aspiring to become elite players at all levels of competition, specializing in small group skills training, competitive leagues, and youth camps.
Bishop, a former resident of Campden Park, is a current St Vincent and the Grenadines basketballer, who resides in North Carolina, USA.
