Lance Von Vogt
Camp Director

Lance Von Vogt

Lance Von Vogt is in his fourth season as the Warriors head men’s basketball coach. During Von Vogt's inaugural year with the Warriors, he recorded an extraordinarily successful season leading William Jessup to a 17-10 record while going 11-1 in the California Pacific Conference (CALPAC). 

Read Full Bio

Over the last two years Coach Von Vogt worked relentlessly to usher in a new era of Warrior basketball as he transitioned the team from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Division II to NAIA Division I while also joining the Golden State Athletic Conference (GSAC); arguably, the most competitive conference in the NAIA. In addition to his work bringing the men's basketball program into the GSAC, Von Vogt has managed additional responsibilities as Associate Athletic Director of William Jessup University.

In 2015-16, Von Vogt led the men’s basketball program to new heights, as the Warriors earned their first ever NAIA Division I top-25 ranking, and also earning a trip to the 2016 NAIA Division I Men’s Basketball National Championship in just the program’s second season at the Division I level. Jessup, entering as a seventh seed, defeated tournament favorite Pikeville (Ky.) in the first round before being eliminated by Mid-American Nazarene in the second round. The win against Pikeville was Jessup first tournament victory ever. The Warriors closed out the season ranked at No. 23 in the nation in the final coaches polls, the programs highest end of the year ranking in history.

The Daytona Beach Shores, Florida native came to the Warriors after three highly successful seasons as the head men basketball coach and assistant athletic director at Peninsula College in Port Angeles, Washington. The Pirates have posted a 65-25 overall record while going 34-12 in the North Division of the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) over the last three years.

In his first season at the helm of the Pirates, Von Vogt led Peninsula College to their first NWAACC Championship in forty-one years.  Von Vogt was honored as the NWAACC Coach of the Year as the Pirates went 22-7.  Heading into his second year, the Pirates started out the year ranked #1 in the NWAACC and earned their first national ranking in school history.  The Pirates finished 25-6 overall and 13-3 in conference before falling in the final four of the NWAACC tournament.  Last season, the Pirates finished the season 18-12.  In three seasons, Von Vogt has coached one NWAACC MVP, four All-NWAACC, six All-North Division and five All-Academic players. In addition to coaching, he served as the athletic development coordinator for the Pirate Athletic Association.

Prior to his arrival at Peninsula, Von Vogt spent the previous four seasons as the lead assistant men's basketball coach and recruiting coordinator at Arizona Western College in Yuma, Arizona.  During his time at AWC, he helped guide the Matadors to three Arizona Community College Athletic Conference championships and two NJCAA Region XVIII championships as they went 103-24 over Von Vogt’s four-year tenure.  Von Vogt recruited and developed four All-Americans, seven All-Region, and ten All-Conference players. 

Before arriving at AWC in 2006, he was the assistant at Eastern Kentucky University where the Division I Colonels placed fourth in the Ohio Valley Conference. Prior to that, he was the head coach at Oxford College of Emory University, where he led the Eagles to a pair of playoff appearances. His three years are the three most successful seasons in the history of the program earning two playoff appearances which were the first in the program’s history. In his third season, Oxford College of Emory University recorded a school-record 22 wins, regional and inter-regional championships and a spot in the NJCAA Top 10, which earned Von Vogt the 2004-05 Region Coach of the Year honors.

Von Vogt's first coaching experience came under the legendary coach Lefty Driesell. Von Vogt served as the director of basketball operations at Georgia State under Driesell from 2000 through 2002. During that time, the Panthers earned a trip to the 2001 NCAA Tournament and advanced to the second round with a win over Wisconsin. Georgia State followed with it’s first-ever trip to the NIT in 2002. Von Vogt also worked as a graduate assistant for Georgia Tech for two seasons.

Von Vogt earned a Master’s Degree in Sports Administration from Georgia State and a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications from the University of South Florida.

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 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 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. 


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.

My son had a wonderful time

My son was the youngest camper and the smallest camper so I worried about his being accepted. But with the help of the director and staff, he was easily immersed into the games/drills by all. The kids were great and he had a wonderful time. Thank you.
