Kyle Frakes is in his 16th season as head men's golf coach and 19th season as assistant men's basketball coach at Rollins College. It's difficult to find a college coach who has enjoyed more success than Frakes has had at Rollins. He has led the Tars to nine NCAA appearances, including a victory in the 2002 NCAA Championship and a second place finish in 2003, and he twice was named NCAA Division II Coach of the Year. The Sunshine State Conference has seen fit to honor him as it's "Coach of the Year" four times. On the basketball side of things, Frakes has helped guide the Rollins College team to four NCAA tournament appearances.
Nike camp staffs are generally comprised of other teaching and touring professionals, college coaches, renowned high school coaches and former/current college players who serve as camp counselors.
Nike Golf Schools & Junior Camps provide young golfers with the tools to enjoy this great game for a lifetime. Our curriculum is the perfect blend of expert instruction, course play and fun off-course activities. With Coach Frakes and his committed and experienced staff, each Nike camper can leave at the end of the week feeling more confident about their game.
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
