Camp Director Natalia Isaac
Natalia brings over 12 years of player development expertise and after three summers as Assistant Camp Director for Nike Basketball Camps, Natalia will lead as Director for camps in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Coach Isaac is inspired to incorporate life skills with quality basketball instruction, while also stressing the importance of good sportsmanship.View Natalia Isaac's Bio ⟩
Growing up, Natalia played just about every sport, but it was basketball that resonated with her the most. She did not have the privilege of participating in basketball camps, which led to her inspiration for developing her own. Natalia participated in her only basketball camp during her junior year in high school and garnered interest from many universities where she went on to play for Temple University while earning a Bachelor’s degree in Sport and Recreation Management.
During her college career, Natalia quickly discovered her passion for teaching the game of basketball and working with children. She has developed basketball camps for several WNBA players, as well as the Washington Wizards organization. Focusing on youth players, Natalia has impacted many children across the U.S. with her disciplined, yet fun approach to teaching the game of basketball.
Director of Camp Operations Awvee Storey
Awvee Storey, former NBA player, was hired as an assistant coach for the Chicago Sky in early 2018. He previously worked for the Mystics as a player personnel manager for five seasons, helping with player development and scouting. As camp director of the Nike Basketball Camps in Leesburg and Sterling for the past five summers, Awvee takes on a new role this year as Director of Camp Operations. He will remain involved in overseeing general camp operations as Natalia Isaac takes over daily on-site duties as camp director.View Awvee Storey's Bio ⟩
Storey spent three seasons in the NBA with the Wizards, New Jersey Nets and Milwaukee Bucks. He also played in the Developmental League with the Dakota Wizards, and overseas with the New Zealand Breakers and the Baranguy Ginebra Kings in the Philippines. After the 2010 season with the Kings, Storey returned back to the U.S. where you began working for the Mystics.
A player personnel manager for the Mystics, Storey has taken an unusual career path for a former NBA player. While many former players wind up as WNBA coaches, including Bill Laimbeer (Detroit Shock), Rick Mahorn (Detroit Shock), Michael Cooper (L.A. Sparks) and Corey Gaines (Phoenix Mercury), Storey is breaking new ground in his multifaceted role.

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 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.
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.

Coaches were focused, committed and knowledgeable.
August 30, 2017: All of the coaches were very focused, committed and knowledgeable in my opinion. My 14 year old son felt like he was definitely challenged physically and he believed he improved during the camp because the instruction was exceptional and the activities were intense.

The co-ed environment was awesome!
August 25, 2017: She had a blast getting to know basketball players from across Northern VA and playing with a new group of kids. The co-ed environment was awesome - helped elevate her play when she was playing against taller, bigger boys. Just a great experience - well worth the cost!
