“Seattle is a great basketball city and one that we feel we can have a big impact in,” explains Carson Sofro, HSBCAMPS Founder. “We had some great support from the local community in our first summer, and were able to get a lot of kids training one-on-one with some great players and coaches including Seattle’s own Ryan Appleby. We are really looking forward to our return.” HSBCAMPS prides itself as a youth basketball program that “gives back”, donating a portion of every programs proceeds to schools and non-profits within each of the communities they serve.
