McCrory brings a decade of coaching experience to the Pioneers, most recently as the associate head coach for Oberlin where he has spent the last seven years. There, the Yeomen saw a nine-win improvement in his last season. In two of the last three years, Oberlin finished with double-digit wins.View Tim's Bio ⟩
McCrory is a former men's basketball student-athlete at Vermont where he played over 100 games. After a couple of years as a graduate assistant at Missouri, McCrory joined the staff at Oberlin in 2011, where he has been since. He was promoted to associate head coach before the start of last season.
At Vermont, McCrory was selected to the America East Commissioner's Honor Roll four times. He earned his master's degree in public administration from Missouri in May of 2010.
Co-Director Randall Jackson
A former Lewis & Clark College student-athlete, Coach Jackson joined the Lewis & Clark Men's Basketball staff as assistant coach in September 2017. L&C is Jackson's second stop as a collegiate coach following the 2016-17 season at Greenville University in Illinois, where the team finished with a 21-6 record that ended in the SLIAC Tournament Championship, 128-121, to Westminster.View Randall's Bio ⟩
Jackson started 10 games during his sophomore season at Lewis & Clark. He scored his Pios' career-high 20 points against Linfield on Feb. 11 of that season. He finished his competitive career at Point Loma Nazarene, an NCAA Division II institution, where he graduated with a degree in communications. In 2014-15, the men's basketball team became the school's first-ever team to be ranked in the NCAA Div. II level when they were voted No. 22 in the NABC poll.
At Greenville, Jackson was the team's primary recruiter on the west coast, including the Pacific Northwest. His duties included the implementation of guard-oriented skill workouts, serving as head coach of the junior varsity program and monitoring the academic performance of student-athletes.

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.
