- 2010 – # 28 in the State

Greg’s coaching philosophy is that basketball is not only about learning the game but also using the circumstances that parallel the game to teach life lessons and prepare our athletes for what lies ahead. He strives to develop each individual to the best of his ability in an attempt to maximize his players’ ability. Understand that skill can only take you so far-thus strength, toughness, hard work, and preparation, should be easily identified in the character of a Jesuit team.

All campers must eat breakfast at home. Please bring a packed lunch or lunch money. Lunch will be provided Monday-Thursday at an additional daily cost of $9. You can purchase a meal plan at check-in. Lunch will include a main item, fruit, cookie, chips, and a drink.
Main items will vary daily:
Separate from the meal plan, there will be a snack bar that campers may purchase snack and drink items with cash or deposit a line of credit for the week at registration. Lunch is not inclusive to the snack bar.
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. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.
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.

July 28, 2017: Zeke had an amazing week and didn't want it to end. My highlight moment was hearing Zeke say that he wants to go to Jesuit and he wants to get good grades in school.
