A Message from Coach Arbitello
Our goal at the Royals Basketball Camp is to bring together young players from all over the area in an environment that will teach them the skills of the game as an individual and stressing the idea of being part of a team. We are also interested in teaching them the importance of sportsmanship. Keeping in mind that everybody plays to win but one must be prepared if the outcome is a loss. Players are divided up by age and skill level, and put into different leagues. Each league will have many teams within it. Players will be placed on a team of no fewer than eight and no more then ten campers and will compete against teams within their own league. All campers play an equal amount of game time. The Christ the King Girls and Boys Basketball Programs are recognized for their many championship seasons and a win loss record that is second to none.

Our mission is to create an atmosphere in which all members of the faculty, staff, and student body can attain a high level of achievement based upon recognition of their unique abilities and their relationship with God. Our student body is challenged to grow academically, spiritually, socially, and physically to meet the demands of a changing world.
