SWA Basketball Camp is just over a month away

The 14th Annual Sports Work Academy Basketball Camp is just over a month away.

The clinic will be returning to Bogalusa this year under the direction of former Bogalusa All-District performer Michael Galloway and former LSU and Portland Trailblazer star Nikita Wilson.

The camp will take place at the Ave B YMCA on Saturday July 17 starting at 9 a.m.

“I’m super excited to be coming back to Bogalusa for our camp this year. We really look forward to our camp each year and having to cancel last year’s camp due to the pandemic was a huge loss for our team,” Galloway said. “We have put together an All-Star list of coaches and speakers with a wide range of skill-sets to provide valuable perspective to the kids.”

The list of coaches will be highlighted by Coach O’Brian Calahan, founder and head coach at Only Basketball Elite, a top tier sports program that teaches aspiring athletes the foundational skills to excel. Calahan attended Jonesboro Hodge High School where he was an all-state performer and district MVP. Calahan went on to play at Alcorn State and Tennessee Temple University.

Three of Galloway’s high school teammates will be attending, including Eric Brister, Attorney Lee Gallaspy and Chav Pierce. Murrell Galloway will return as the coaches captain.     

Registration will be at 8:30 a.m. on camp day.
