A Fairfield County native, Mannetti has called New Caanan home for much of her life.  She comes to Sacred Heart after spending the past four seasons as an assistant coach at Hofstra University on Krista Kilburn-Steveskey's staff.  While at Hofstra, Mannetti helped guide the Pride to a 72-55 record as well as a pair of appearances in the WNIT.

She helped develop several players who went on to receive accolades from the Colonial Athletic Conference (CAA) including Candace Bond who was named the 2012-13 CAA Defensive Player of the Year.  She assisted with the development of All-American Shante Evans, who was named to the 2011 USA Basketball Women's Pan American Games team.  As a recruiter, Hofstra's 2011 class ranked as the sixth best mid-major recruiting class in the nation by ESPN Hoopgurlz.

Prior to arriving at Hofstra, Mannetti served as the head girls' varsity basketball coach at Green Farms Academy in Westport, CT.  In 2008-09 she led the team to a spot in the Fairchester Athletic Association (FAA) postseason tournament for the first time in school history. In her five seasons with Greens Farm, she developed the program from junior varsity status in 2004-05 to leading the Dragons to the playoffs in her final campaign.

A veteran of the AAU scene, Mannetti served as the head coach of the U-18 girls' team for the CT Future Stars AAU Basketball program from 2004 through 2008.  Mannetti has also spent considerable time working with the Five-Star Basketball in a variety of positions since 1999.  In addition, she previously worked an internship with the New York Knicks in their basketball operations department and worked as an event staffer for the New York Liberty.

A three-sport athlete in college, Mannetti graduated from Concordia College in Bronxville, NY in 2001 with a degree in business administration. She played volleyball, basketball and softball at Concordia and served as the team captain for both the volleyball and basketball teams.

http://www.bradleyairport.com/Transport/. If campers are flying into LaGuardia Airport, please visit their website: http://www.panynj.gov/airports/laguardia.html. 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. 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.  

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, as a group by mail or fax, each camper will receive a $20 discount. If 10 or more campers register together, as a group by mail or fax, each camper will receive a $40 discount. 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. Late or individual registrations are not eligible to receive the group discount.

I am looking forward to participating next summer!

I enjoyed the camp very much. I recommend this to all my friends. I liked how we were split up into teams and had stations in the morning and games in the afternoon. I also liked how we got a big break for lunch, that we weren't rushed to eat so we could get back. I enjoyed it very much, and I am looking forward to participating next summer!
