Entering her 24th season at the helm for the Setters, Head Coach Carrie Seymour has a career record of 417-260 (.616). The Setters have made it to the NCAA tournament five out of the past ten years to total ten trips for Head Coach Carrie Seymour.  

Read Full Bio

During the 2015 season, Seymour coached the Setters to a six-game winning streak in the middle of the season that was capped off by a conference victory over Merrimack in which the team connected on 13 three-pointers. Seymour saw a great deal of success in her incoming group of newcomers as freshman sensation Gabriella Rubin was named ECAC Co-Rookie of the Year. Rubin was also named to the NE-10 All-Rookie squad. Also during the 2015 campaign, senior Margo Hackett earned NE-10 All-Academic Team honors. Under Seymour's coaching, Hackett led the conference in free throw percentage with a mark of 89.4% and became just the 26th member of the 1000 point career scoring list.

Seymour was rewarded for her efforts in the 2009-10 season by being named the NIT/Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association Division II Coach of the Year. It was the sixth time Seymour was given this honor while at Pace, as she also received the honor following the 1995-96, 1999-00, 2000-01, 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons. Seymour enters the year as Pace’s all-time victory leader with 417. 

In 23 seasons, Seymour has averaged 18 wins per season since beginning in 1992.  On January 26, 2002, Seymour reached the 200-win mark with an 81-70 victory over Merrimack.  To date, she is the fourth-fastest Division II women’s basketball coach to reach 100 victories, accomplishing the feat in 127 games. On February 23, 2008 against Le Moyne, she earned her 300th victory of her illustrious career. 

Well known for her ability to recruit quality student-athletes who graduate and go on to establish successful careers, Seymour has guided her teams to sixteen postseason appearances. The Setters have participated in ten NCAA Tournaments, highlighted by a trip to the Division II Elite Eight in 2000-01 and the Sweet Sixteen in 1993-94 and 2010-11.  Pace has also won three Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division II championships in 1993, 1996 and 1997. Coach Seymour has been recognized regionally and nationally for her efforts, winning numerous coaching awards.  She earned the New York Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year award following the 1993-94 season, is a two-time WBCA District Coach of the Year (1993-94 and 1999-00).

One of the main constants of Seymour’s Pace teams has been defense. The Setters have ranked among the top 10 teams nationally in defensive field goal percentage and scoring defense in five of the past 15 seasons, leading the nation in defensive field goal percentage in 1993, 1994 and 1997.  Seymour’s 2000-01 squad finished 12th in defensive field goal percentage and 16th in scoring defense.  The Setters led the nation in both categories in 1993-94 and possess the second-best all-time defensive field goal percentage among Division II schools when they held opponents to a .308 shooting percentage in 1993-94.

Before coming to Pace, she began coaching at Eastern Connecticut State University where she was an assistant for a year. She then took on one-year stints as an assistant at Marist College and the College of the Holy Cross, before working the sidelines at St. John’s University for six seasons. She arrived on the Pace campus in 1992 and the Setters teams have thrived ever since, posting twelve 20-win seasons.   

Seymour attended Eastern Connecticut State University where she was an all-star as a player. In 1983, she received her B.A. in Psychology with minors in Physical Education and Coaching. She earned her Master’s Degree in Education from St. John’s University in 1993.  

Seymour is a member of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and is a national chairperson on the Division II State Farm All-American Committee. She has previously served on the Division II IKON/WBCA Coach of the Year Committee and the Coaching Women’s Basketball Magazine editorial board.

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. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.

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 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. 

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.

My son had a wonderful time.

My child was the youngest camper and the smallest camper so I worried about his being accepted and he was easily immersed into the games/drills by all. The kids were great and he had a wonderful time.
