While at George Washington High School, he was lucky enough to play for a coach named Joe Gualco (SI ’63). Coach Gualco made the game of baseball simple for Delaney with his famous words, “Delaney you gotta keep the game simple, so use the K.I.S.S Method: Keep It Simple Stupid.” After graduating from George Washington, Delaney attended College of San Mateo where he played for Coach Doug Williams from 1997-1999.
In 1999 Delaney then transferred to Skyline College where he played for Dino Nomicos (SI ’80), and John Quintel, who is Chris’s Hitting Mentor.

CAMP MEALS - Bring a Lunch
Campers should bring their own lunch each day.
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.
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 prior to the start of camp. 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.
If five or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $20 discount. If 10 or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $35 discount. Teams can register online or via mail/fax.
