Nike Boys Basketball Camp Lewis & Clark College Portland, Oregon
Nike Basketball Camps are excited to be adding a week of boys basketball camp at Lewis & Clark College this summer from July 15-18. Under the direction of Assistant Men's Coach at Lewis & Clark, Cy Vandermeer, campers aged 10-16 will be challenged to improve their skills and become stronger players.
After playing college basketball Vandermeer continued to pursue his love for the game through coaching. He has been coaching college basketball for the past three years and brings with him an equally qualified coaching staff. On the first day of camp the players will be evaluated and placed into groups based on their skill levels to ensure that everyone gets the most out of the camp experience. Throughout the week, players will run through drills and stations with close guidance and instruction from our coaches.
All abilities are welcome at this camp, Coach Vandermeer's staff is eager to help all young players take their game to new heights whether that is making the varsity team in the fall or working on perfecting their shot. With drill stations and games that emphasize offensive and defensive technique, passing, team play, shooting, and more, this camp is the perfect opportunity for players to maintain their skills and fundamentals in between seasons.

- Fun and challenging daily schedule featuring games, skill stations, and full court play
- Official Nike Camp T-shirt and Workbook for each camper

In the 2011-12 season, Humboldt won the Conference championship and the Conference tournament for the first time in school history. In addition, Humboldt made the NCAA tournament in both seasons.Read Full Bio
During his collegiate playing career at Humboldt State, Vandermeer helped the Lumberjacks claim back-to-back California Collegiate Athletic Association conference championships in 2007 and 2008. In those same two seasons, Humboldt State moved on to the NCAA Division II West Region Championship Tournament, making it all the way to the title game in 2007.
As a senior, Vandermeer averaged 11.2 points per game and was the league's third best rebounder with 8.6 per game while also blocking 62 shots, earning All-CCAA First-Team honors and First-Team All-Academic as well. As a player he went to the NCAA Tournament three out of four seasons.
Complete Skills: This program is intended to help players develop athletically. The individual camp is a great opportunity for young basketball players looking to develop and refine their fundamental basketball skills. This program also includes a curriculum for intermediate/ advanced players looking to enhance their skill set at the post, wing, or guard position. Emphasis is placed on fundamental development, shooting, offensive moves, defense, rebounding, team play, and more.
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
