NBA Champion Justin Holiday Due At Mercer Island Camp

Justin Holiday, a reserve for the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors, will attend the HSBCamp scheduled for July 20-24 at the Boys & Girls Club in Mercer Island.

Camp director Carson Sofro, a former hoops star at the Community School of Sun Valley and the University of Redlands in California, is staging the sixth summer of his HSBCAMPS in the Seattle area (www.hsbcamps.com).

Each year, Sofro brings a number of professional basketball players to the Mercer Island camp where they train and meet with the youngsters. This year’s star attraction is Holiday.

Holiday, 26, is a 6-6, 185-pound shooting guard/small forward from Mission Hills, Ca. who averaged 11 minutes per game in 59 games with the Warriors during the 2014-15 season. He averaged 4.3 ppg. On July 8, unrestricted free agent Holiday signed a multi-year contract with the NBA Atlanta Hawks.

As a senior at Campbell Hall School in Studio City, Ca., Holiday averaged 19.1 ppg and 9.5 rebounds in leading Campbell to a California state high school championship. He played four years at the University of Washington and, as a senior, was co-captain and was named the Pac-10 “Defensive Player of the Year.”

Holiday played for the D-League Idaho Stampede from 2012-13 and averaged 17.3 ppg. His younger brother Jrue plays for the NBA New Orleans Pelicans and two other siblings also play high-level basketball.

Sofro said, “We don’t have many spots left in our full-day camp (about 3), but we want to let kids know about the camp, since they have an interest in meeting Justin, training with him or hearing his story—a unique opportunity.”

“Elevate Your Game” is the camp slogan. Boys and girls are welcome. Sofro said, “Should be a great camp with some great guys.”

The Mercer Island full-day camp is for boys and girls entering grades 4-12 is Monday through Friday, July 20-24. Times are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cost is $225. Participants are separated into groups based on age and abil-ity.

Running in the same July 20-24 time frame and at the same location is the morning clinic for grades K-3, from 9 a.m.-noon. Cost is $150. Fundamental drills and contests are emphasized for the little kids.

Registrations are accepted online on a first-come, first-served basis. Included in the fee for each camp is a free camp t-shirt, basketball swag, and other giveaways.

Cage players expected at the upcoming camp in Mercer Island, all with professional experience in the U.S. and abroad, include:

J.R. Harrison, 31, a 6-6 forward from Gainesville, Texas and Rice University; Perry Petty, 26, a 6-1 point guard from Chicago who played in Lebanon last season; Brian Burrell, 30, 6-3, 170, from the University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley Vaqueros; and Tayron Thomas, 31, the 6-2, 190-pound all-time leading scorer for NCAA Division 2 Philadelphia University.

Academy News – Online System & Summer Schedule!

Crazy to think it is already summer. Many of you have asked about the Academy schedule for June and July so here goes. Although there will be some conflicts with camps in which we will not meet regularly, for the most part the Academy will be in operation. All cancellations will be posted to the schedule in the online registration system. To avoid showing up to a class that has been changed, please make sure you are using MindBody, pre-registering for classes, or checking for news updates on our website.

For example, there will be no sessions next week (June 15th-20th) due to camps in McCall and Twin Falls. For those that have not yet started using our new system, you may not be aware of this change.
Remember there are two ways to access your account – via a computer or by downloading our new HSB Academy app through the Play Store (Android) or iTunes for Apple users.

Thanks in advance and any questions email info@hsbacademy.com. We have been working diligently to improve all of our systems and appreciate your patience through this transition. Have a great summer!

Live From Bolivia – Coach Tyray Checks In!

Hello friends and campers – just shooting you guys a quick update from down in South America.  I started off this last season playing in the top league in Colombia.  Unfortunately facing some minor injuries and a tough losing streak they deciding to send me home and go in another direction.  It’s never fun to be released but I believe everything happens for a reason.

When I arrived back in the states things turned and they turned quickly.  My beautiful daughter was born in good health and within a week I was offered a job in Bolivia (San Simon) playing in the top league with an opportunity to compete for a title.   We currently sit 7-0 heading into tonights matchup with the second ranked team from Santa Cruz.  It’s certainly going to be a big test.

I’m playing well averaging 21.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 4 assists per game.  I’ve been carrying the HSB banner down here helping and training kids with some of the drills from camps and the Academy.  They may speak a different language but when it comes to hard work, sacrificing, and believing in yourself that message seems to be universal.  It’s cool to know I’m not only excelling on the court myself but getting the opportunity to help some future Bolivian stars with their game.

Ok gotta go but I’ll keep you guys updated and hope to see you late this summer with some fancy hardware and more great stories to share.  Keep working hard and stay tuned!

In The News – Petty Earns First Team Honors!

The ballots are in – as reported by Eurobasket.com May 23rd, there’s a familiar face toping the 2015 Lebanese Basketball charts.  Moutahed Point Guard Perry Petty (Milwaukee, WI) received two awards, earning  spots on the All-League and All-Import First Teams.  Scoring nearly 22 points and dishing out more than 7 assists per game, the American was ranked amongst the leagues best in nearly every major statistical category.  Now playing in Qatar, stay tuned for a more detailed follow up next week.

New Registration System – MindBody FAQ’s!

Last winter we took on the daunting task of updating all of our systems at HSB.  Looking for something much more mobile and user friendly, we opted to transition all of our online registration over to MindBody.  A product we have used with great success in the Academy, we felt it was an appropriate solution.  Though many of you have navigated the system without issue, some have been having trouble.  To clear up any potential problems we wanted to provide some answers to the most commonly asked questions.

_______________________________________

I already have an account, why won’t it let me log in?

As mentioned the system is 100% brand new, therefor everyone will be required to set-up a new account to register. Click Here to get started.

_______________________________________

I have set up an account, why can’t I log in?

This question will be targeted to those that are utilizing MindBody for our Academy.  Although they use the same software, the Academy and Camps use different databases.  You will be required to set-up a new account for each.  If you are getting an error message, make sure you are completely logged out of the Academy site.  It will not allow you to get to the Camps page without logging out of the Academy page completely.  You will know you are at the right spot if the logo at the top is blue and say HSBCAMPS.

_______________________________________

I am registering multiple kids – do I need to set up a separate account for each one?

No – although the system is not great for families (they are working on a fix for this), you can register all of your children under one account using the “Add A Sibling Tab” in your profile.  Please make sure to complete each profile by filling out all the index questions (t-shirts, grade, position, etc.) for each user.

_______________________________________

If I use the a payment method, when are my payments due?

Payments are the same as they are every year.  On May 1, 2015, 50% of your outstanding balance was due with the remaining due 30 days before camp starts.  Click Here to log in and make a payment.

_______________________________________

How do I make a payment?

Under the Account Details section of your account, if you have a balance you will see a button that says “Make a Payment.”  Click this to be redirected to the payment portal.

_______________________________________

For those that have any additional questions please feel free to contact us.  Appreciate your patience through all of this and look forward to seeing you on the court this summer.
