Loading up his bench with former Lumberjack all-stars, Humboldt State men's basketball head coach Steve Kinder welcomed back Cy Vandermeer as his top assistant in August of 2013.

Vandermeer, who played for the Jacks from 2005-2009 and served as a part-time assistant coach from 2010-12, returns to Humboldt State after one year as an assistant coach at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Ore. He takes over for Carl Nash, who left HSU to take a position as head coach of the Tianjin City Lions in Tianjin City, China.
"Cy's return to our program provides an immediate injection of energy and knowledge," Kinder said. "He gives us a great on-court coach who effectively directs players. And he's one of our own – a true Lumberjack champion."

Prior to coaching at HSU, Vandermeer coached locally  at McKinleyville High from 2008-2010 and was an AAU basketball coach from 2005-2009.

During his collegiate playing career at Humboldt State, Vandermeer helped the Lumberjacks claim two 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 47 shots, earning All-CCAA first team honors.

Vandermeer graduated from Humboldt State in 2008 with a degree in recreation administration. He is married to former HSU women's basketball player Laura Berreth, and the couple has two chldren, Lucas and Jane.

Dinari Foreman became the sixth head coach in the Lewis & Clark men’s basketball program history on June 1, 2011 and starts his sixth season at the helm entering the 2016-17 season.

Entering the 2015-16 season, the Pioneers had made the Northwest Conference tournament in each of Foreman's seasons as the head coach including a spot in the NWC final to end 2016.

Foreman has been a cornerstone of the Lewis & Clark basketball program for the past decade, initially returning to his alma mater as a part-time assistant coach in the 2001-02 season. After six seasons as an assistant, Foreman was promoted to Associate Head Coach in 2007.

During his time on the bench alongside head coach Bob Gaillard, Foreman helped lead the Pioneers to six post-season appearances, including making it to the Elite Eight of the 2002 NCAA National Championships, along with a pair of Conference titles. He coached 18 players to All-Conference honors and help mentor Scott Davis to All-American status in 2002.

Foreman’s history with the Pioneers began as a player wearing the Orange and Black. During his two seasons with the Pioneers, Foreman earned NAIA 1st Team All-America honors, was a two-time first team All-Conference honoree, and was second in the nation in scoring during his senior season (1994-95). He led the Pios to a pair of Northwest Conference Championships and helped the 1993-94 team advance to the Final Four of the NAIA National Championships. He set the Pioneer single-season record for field goal percentage, making 61.9 percent of his attempts during his junior season. His 25.7 points-per-game average during his senior campaign was the second-best in the history of the program.

Foreman’s collegiate basketball career began at Napa Valley College for coach Kermit Young where he was a two-time 1st Team All-Bay Valley team member, averaging 23.8 points per game and 10.4 rebounds per game his sophomore season. He is the school’s career record holder in field goal percentage converting on 63.4 percent of his shots taken.  The NVC Storm went 50-10 in Foreman’s two seasons there before transferring to L&C.

Foreman was inducted into the Lewis & Clark College Sports Hall of Fame in 2005.

After college, Foreman played two years of professional basketball in Germany’s Second Division. In recent years, he served as a volunteer coach for the Turkish Basketball Federation’s (TBF) Best Five 2007 Basketball camps in Erzincan and Usak in a program managed by the U.S. Department of State.

In addition to serving as a basketball assistant coach, Foreman also managed the Intramural Program for the entire College from 2007-11.

Foreman graduated from Lewis & Clark in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Communications. He and his wife, Jill, are proud parents of their daughter Kasha.

Foreman is the latest former Lewis & Clark assistant under Bob Gaillard to move up in the collegiate coaching world. Other Gaillard assistants who have continued on in the coaching profession include Shanon Rosenburg (Head Coach, Foothill College), Kirk Crawford (Assistant Coach, Air Force- women), Bob Pierce (Head Coach, Akita- Japan BJ League), and Eric Bridgeland (Head Coach, Whitman College).

“Lewis & Clark College was the best thing to happen to me in my life.  The faculty, staff, and students here are incredible.  I can't wait to lead and mentor these young people through what should be the best times of their lives.” – Head Coach Dinari Foreman.

More Important Camp Details

Camper Evaluation

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.

Transportation

Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.

Registration Packet

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 prior to the start of camp. 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. 

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

Group Discounts

If five or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $20 discount. If 10 or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $40 discount. Teams can register online or via mail/fax.

  • To register your team online: Please have a team contact reach out directly to the USSC office at 1-800-645-3226 to receive a discount code to identify your group. Campers may then register individually through the website at their convenience and apply the coupon code during check-out.
  • To register your team via mail/fax: Click "Get Brochure" above and print the application. All applications must be received at the same time via mail or fax. If all members of your group pay with a Visa or MasterCard, feel free to fax your applications to 415-479-6061 to expedite processing.

Facilities

Camp will take place at Lewis & Clark College's Pamplin Sports Center, a 2,300 seat basketball arena which serves home to the Lewis & Clark Men's and Women's Basketball teams. The floor’s finger jointed matched MFMA Norther Hard Maple is installed over a plywood subfloor and pad system designed to reduce the likelihood of impact injuries and damage to the joints and provide a uniform playing surface. It is finished with 2 coard Hillyard seal and 2 coats finish. A brand new state of the art Daktronics color smart scoreboard system was installed in the summer of 2009. The scoreboards are located on the wall of both baselines, with one board featuring player stat panels. Shot clocks are placed on the backboard of both baskets.
