March 7, 2011 - PRLog -- In 2003, Carson Sofro & Ryan Girardot knew nothing of each other, let alone the businesses they would one-day command.  Sofro was half way through his freshman season at the University of Redlands in southern California, and Girardot, was an ambitious young teenager, flirting with the idea of running a start-up basketball league out of his driveway in Forney, Texas.  Today, they are the CEO’s of their own corporations, taking their respective basketball businesses to new heights.  Sofro’s HSBCAMPS, has quickly become America’s fastest growing youth basketball program and Girardot’s "Shamrock Basketball Association", is the fastest growing youth and adult basketball league in Texas (with plans underway for national expansion).  When the two became aware of what the other was doing, a partnership was quickly formed.

“When Ryan found out that we were coming to Forney this summer, he immediately reached out and things took off from there,” explains Sofro.  “Being a young entrepreneur myself, I have a deep respect for what Ryan and his group are trying to do, and I think the feeling is mutual.”  The two groups will not only share a partnership, but they will share a new home at the brand new Forney Sports Center as well.  HSBCAMPS will host one of their nationally recognized youth basketball programs geared towards teaching and developing the fundamentals of basketball for boys and girls in elementary, middle and high school grades in June. "SBA", will open their second league campaign at the Center around the same time.

“I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Carson, who shares my same passion for youth basketball development.” Girardot shared.   “I am looking forward to building a partnership that will benefit both the older players in our league, and the younger players in HSB Camps, for many years to come.” For more information on both programs or to register for one of their events visit HSBCAMPS at or Shamrock Basketball Association (SBA) at
