The 15th annual Sports Work Academy Basketball camp will be returning to Bogalusa this year under the direction of former Bogalusa All-District performer Michael Galloway and former LSU and Portland Trailblazers star Nikita Wilson.

Galloway is a 1985 Bogalusa High School graduate.

The camp will take place at the Ave B YMCA on Saturday, July 23 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 we have high expectations coming off last year’s excellent turnout,” said Camp Director Mike Galloway. “We are putting together an All-Star list of coaches and speakers with a wide range of skill-sets to provide valuable perspective to the kids.”

Galloway said they have confirmed the return of 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 St. and Tennessee Temple University.

Galloway said there are several additional coaches that they are in discussion with and they will provide updates once they confirm.

Murrell Galloway, who is a 1987 Bogalusa High School graduate, will return as the coaches captain.     

Registration for the camp will begin at 8:30 a.m. Participants can pre-register by contacting Michael Galloway at 678-458-3326
