BATTLE IN THE BLUFFS (BITB)
Founders Ian Thomas-Minor and Arthur J. Andrews, III launched the Battle In The Bluffs (BITB), a free basketball camp, in the summer of 2012. Since then, hundreds of kids across the country come to Martha's Vineyard, every summer, where they learn the fundamentals of basketball, improve their communication skills, and enjoy healthy competition.
Our youth BITB camp is offered to girls and boys between the ages of 6-16 years old. We focus on teaching your child the fundamentals of the sport while highlighting the skills they can incorporate in their everyday lives. The result is an environment where children encourage, support, and learn from one another on and off the court.
The adult tournament serves to provide Martha's Vineyard residents and vacationers with Pro-Am basketball entertainment, in addition to being the main vehicle used to finance the youth camp and other charitable donations - Most notable being the recent renovation of Niantic Park.
