Camp Director Brittany White
White will be entering her 4th season with Tuskegee university (2021-2022 season) as the assistant women's basketball coach. This past season White helped guide Tuskegee to a 12-2 record, earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Division-II playoffs. It was the first NCAA tournament appearance for the Golden Tigers since 2008. The lady tigers were ranked nationally as high as #16 in the nation and finished the season ranked #25.View Brittany's Bio ⟩
Tuskegee finished conference runner-up in 2020 and beat its first Division 1 team in 20 years with a win over Georgia State on their home court. Two seasons ago (2018-19) achieved the school's best record in 19 years, finishing with a 20-6 overall mark, the program's first 20-win season since 2000. Tuskegee also advanced to the semi-finals of the conference tournament and ended the year with a 13-3 league record. This was one of the greatest turnarounds in NCAA division 2 as they won 14 more games than the previous season.
White joined TU after two seasons as an assistant coach with the Francis Marion University women's basketball program. Her primary responsibilities with the Patriots include recruiting, on-floor coaching, individual player workouts, pre-and post-season workouts, and helping in the area of academic support for team members.
In her first year with FMU, the Patriots went 18-12 and placed second in the Peach Belt Conference's East Division. During her second year, Francis Marion posted a 16-12 mark. She spent the 2015-16 year as a physical education teacher at Forest Park Middle School near Atlanta. White also worked with the Collegiate Prep Basketball Academy and served as a basketball official.
While at Delta State, she spent two seasons as a graduate assistant coach under head coach Craig Roden. During her time at DSU, the Lady Statesmen posted a combined two-year record of 43-16, made two appearances in the Gulf South Conference Tournament championship game, and earned a bid to the 2014 NCAA Division II National Tournament.
White played two seasons at Augusta, captaining the Jaguar squads as both a junior and senior. As a senior, she helped lead the Jaguars to a 21-6 mark and a national No.6 ranking for scoring defense (53.8 ppg) per game, while leading the Peach Belt Conference in steals (3.9 spg) and ranking fourth in NCAA Division II.
White spent her first two years at Southern Polytechnic State University, an NAIA Division I program. A two-year starter, she garnered All-Freshmen, All-Academic, and All-Tournament team recognition. White helped lead Southern Polytechnic to a pair of SSAC Tournament titles, two NAIA national tournament bids, and one Sweet Sixteen appearance (2010).
White completed a 90-hour internship with Dip Metris, head men's basketball coach at Augusta. She also coached a summer AAU team for four years, instructed at Southern Polytechnic's basketball camp, and completed a 450-hour internship at the Downtown Augusta YMCA, where she instructed girls on the fundamentals of basketball.
White is a native of Marietta, Ga., White earned a B.S. degree in Kinesiology from Augusta University and an M.S. degree in sport and human performance from Delta State University.

Lunch is not provided. Please bring a packed lunch or lunch money. A concession stand will be open for lunch, snack and drink purchases. $10 per day covers lunch and two snacks.
Nike Versa Tack Basketballs can be purchased during registration for $25. Players can choose between a size 6 (28.5", standard girls) or size 7 (29.5", standard boys) ball, which will be passed out on the last day of camp. Please note that it is not required to bring a basketball to camp as they are provided by the staff for camp instruction.
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 information 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.
