Bishop Foley’s coaching staff and their players love nothing more than sharing their love of basketball with athletes who feel the same passion.  If you like to work hard and improve your game, we want to help you become a better athlete and basketball player. We treat the first day like an NBA combine and measure your vertical, quickness, speed and strength the same way the professionals do.  We know competition brings out the best in athletes, so we battle in multiple individual contests, three-on-three tournaments, and full- blown games every day.  As much as we love competition, our main goal is to make this week a fun and exciting learning experience so every player looks forward to the next day of camp.

 
During these fun-filled days, campers will participate in drills and games designed to improve their shooting, passing, ball handling, defense and overall understanding of the game. Head Coach Isaiah Novak is in his 4th year coaching varsity boys basketball. He was previously the JV coach and varsity assistant for 5 seasons and is a 2005 graduate of Bishop Foley Catholic. He also played basketball at Kalamazoo College. Coach Novak will be assisted by his staff and varsity players.  

Bishop Foley Catholic would also like to welcome parents to join their sons and assist the Bishop Foley players and staff with coaching and refereeing.  Our basketball program works to form relationships with the players, as well as the parents, as we continue to develop our "Foley Family" atmosphere.
