Camp Director Corey Laster
Jessup Athletics officially announced Corey Laster as the new Head Coach for the women’s basketball program in the summer of 2021. Laster takes over a program that has reached the NAIA National Tournament twice in the three years prior to his arrival. Before taking the job here at Jessup, Laster spent five seasons leading the women's basketball program at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood, Colorado.View Corey's Bio ⟩
While with the Cougars, Laster won 46 games, including a 13-win season during the 2018-19 campaign. The Cougars knocked off two nationally-ranked opponents that season in No. 22 Black Hills State University and No. 19 Colorado Mesa University.
Laster began coaching at his alma mater, Taylor University (NAIA). In three years leading the program, Taylor went 51-31 under Laster. Laster also held assistant coaching positions at Saint Michaels (NCAA DII) and Bucknell (NCAA DI).
From 2005-07, Laster served as the head coach of NCAA Division III school Defiance College in Ohio. He also served as the head coach from 2010-14 at the University of Colorado Springs (NCAA DII). Laster won 60 games during his four-year stint in Colorado Springs.
As an athlete, Laster played four seasons of basketball at Taylor University, where he finished his career as one of the school's all-time leaders in scoring and rebounding. Laster was added to the Taylor Athletics Hall of Fame in 2010, and he received the school's Distinguished Alumni Award in 2008.
Athletic Director Lance Von Vogt said of the hiring of Laster, "Corey embodies what we are all about at Jessup, transformational education for the glory of God. He's a fantastic coach on the court, but his impact will be even greater off the court."

— Blakley W., Parent
Even coming from Barcelona, Spain, we will try to attend this camp next summer.
Really great coaching staff. Very very good engagement and technical knowlegde and fun to transmit this knowledge. Even for my younger 11 year old, she learned to shoot in going two steps behind (kind of Nowitzky shot). Even in the rest times the coaches were open to do individual trainings! Perfect in all way and very challenging intensity. Even coming from Barcelona, Spain, we will try to attend this camp next summer.

All of the coaches were awesome! I feel like I learned a lot and my skills improved a lot.
— Alyssa D., Camper
The coach and staff were incredible! What a special group of leaders. My daughters skills improved so much in that short amount of time. They were learning drills that i never went through in high school and the teaching and communication of staff to campers=world class. My daughter went in apprehensive, unsure of her ability,and only wanting to do day camp. She left on a whole different level in all these areas and after first hour on monday asked to be overnight! The facility at William Jessup and dorms were clean,friendly,and safe.Please consider this location again! We will see you next year!
— Michael B., Parent

My daughter LOVED the Nike Camp. Her skill set and confidence improved so much in just the 4 full jam packed days of instruction. She had a blast and met a lot lof new friends. She can't wait for next year's camp!
Best camp I've ever been to!
July 10, 2016: The coaches and players were all great to be around.I enjoyed how the coaches sat us down after lunch and talked to us about why they play basketball and what really matters, on and off the court. I also enjoyed learning how to be a better post player and playing against experienced players. My favorite part was becoming friends with some of the staff and players, learning how to be a better player, and learning ways to help make my team back home a strong team through friendship and hard work.
