Rob Southall
Camp Director

Rob Southall

Hired in the fall of 2013, Rob Southall is now in his second season as head coach of the men's basketball program at Elms College and begins his first year as Elms' assistant director of athletics. 

Read Full Bio

Coach Southall took over the Blazers’ men’s basketball program following an eight-year stint as a full time assistant coach at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).

Coach Southall brings extensive Division III coaching experience to his position at Elms and will look to continue the program’s tremendous consistency. Since the 2004-05 season, the Blazers have had nine consecutive 18-plus win seasons, have won eight conference titles, earned seven NCAA Division III Championship appearances, and secured a pair of Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III New England Championship appearances.   

During his time at WPI, the Engineers enjoyed tremendous success with Coach Southall on the bench compiling a 178-44 record with six New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) regular season championships as well as the 2005-06 and 2012-13 NEWMAC tournament championships, six appearances in the NCAA Division III Championship and the 2011-12 ECAC Division III New England Championship title. WPI also notched 20 or more wins in each of Coach Southall’s eight seasons on staff under head coach Chris Bartley.

Prior to his time at WPI, Coach Southall spent a season assisting Joe Reilly at Bates College and helped guide the team to one of its best seasons in school history (19-8). Bates reached the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Championship tournament final before falling to Amherst College.

A 2002 graduate of Springfield College, Coach Southall played basketball for two seasons and was a graduate assistant coach for the Pride under head coach Charlie Brock for two years. At Springfield, he was also the head junior varsity basketball coach and was heavily involved in recruiting and game preparation. Coach Southall also obtained a master’s degree from Springfield in 2004.

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. A closing ceremony will take place shortly after camp check-out on the last day. Parents are invited to attend!


Overnight Campers

Housing & Roommates

Campers will reside in Grubbs Quadrangle dormitories on campus. Campers will have single and double rooms (assigned by age and roommate requests). Double rooms are limited and the Director will try to accommodate roommate requests giving younger campers priority.  When several campers request multiple roommates, arrangements will be worked out with campers Sunday evening. Campers who do not request a roommate may be placed in a double room so if you prefer a single room please make that request. Roommate requests are not guaranteed. If you don't have a roommate request, you may be placed in a room with someone near your age. It will be a great opportunity to meet someone new!

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 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. The State of Connecticut requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.  


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.
