Camp Director

Phil Stern

UMBC Head Women's Basketball Coach and long-time Nike Camp Director Phil Stern directs our instructional program.  Over the past 13 years, Coach Stern has developed a reputation for revitalizing struggling programs.

Read Full Bio

That reputation reached its pinnacle in 2007, when UMBC became champions of the America East Tournament title game.  Stern led UMBC to its first-ever America East championship with an unprecedented run through the conference. Seeded seventh, the Retrievers knocked off the top three seeds – No. 2 Stony Brook in the quarterfinals, No. 3 Vermont in the semis and No. 1 Hartford in the finals – on consecutive days.

The win propelled the Retrievers to their first-ever berth in the NCAA Tournament, where they drew top-seeded Connecticut, one of the most storied programs in women’s basketball history.  It was a long way to come for a team that won a combined 12 games from 2003-05 in its first two seasons in the America East as it struggled to adapt to a league ranked 10 spots ahead of the Northeast Conference in the Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) poll.

Prior to joining UMBC, Stern served as head coach at USC Aiken in Aiken, S.C., from 1998-2002. His team finiahed with a 5-22 record in his inaugural season but posted the program’s first winning campaign since 1993-94 in his second (1999-2000), and by his third year (2000-01) he had developed the Lady Pacers into a 22-7 squad and the Peach Belt Conference North Division champs.

The following year, Stern’s team successfully defended its title while winning the Peach Belt Conference regular season and earning an NCAA Division II Tournament appearance. Over his final two years at USC Aiken, Stern’s teams went a combined 59-25.  Stern was named Peach Belt Conference Coach of the Year twice (2000, 2002), as well as WBCA District-III Coach of the Year in 2002.

My game improved a lot

This is my favorite camp of the summer!!!!! I love all the counselors and the instruction is very good! I go to this camp every summer and always have a blast!!! I liked it when the shooting camp and the skills camp were back to back. I also like how Erin brown runs the camp every year and does a great job with it. I can't wait until next year!!!

Fabulous camp staff

As a parent, I must say that all of the camp staff was so kind, helpful, and patient not only with the girls attending but also with the parents. They were so willing to help with anything, even the luggage. The camp staff should be commended, and my daughter will definitely be coming back next year and so on. Thank you.

I have played basketball for almost 4 years, but this camp really gave me the inspiration to work harder and take the game more serious. I have a new understanding of the physical commitment required of me to succeed.

All of the coaches were nice

All of the coaches were nice and took the time to answer question not only of the campers but the parents as well. My daughter had a blast and will likely attend a future Nike camp.

This basketball camp was their favorite

Both of my girls had a lot of fun at the Nike Basketball Camp. Of the three basketball camps they participated in this summer, they really enjoyed this one the most. They loved hanging out and eating in the dining halls with the older players and of course the fun skills!
