Christ the King Royals Basketball Camp opened their 2012 Summer Camp season by giving a big shout across the pond, wishing the 2012 Olympics USA Women’s Basketball team the best of luck. Christ the King Regional High School is proud to have two alumni, Sue Bird (’98) and Tina Charles (’06) playing in the 2012 Olympics, taking place in London.
Both Sue Bird and Tina Charles are not only alumni of Christ the King Regional High School, but have attended and coached at Christ the King Royals Basketball Camp as well. Past NBA players, such as Craig “Speedy” Claxton and Erik Barkley have also come back as coaches to the camp.
Christ the King Royals Basketball Camp features week long workshops where children ages 7 to 16 learn the skills of basketball as well as the importance of sportsmanship. To date, both the Camp and CK High School have produced a record 4 Basketball Olympians including Lamar Odom (2004 Summer Olympics) and Chamique Holdsclaw (2000 Summer Olympics).
Pictured with the Basketball Camp are also attendees of Christ the King’s Daycare, who celebrated a week long Olympic theme, which included their own Olympics-inspired sports.
